NBCSP to air Red Wings-Canadiens
The Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens will have the spotlight all to themselves on Wednesday night.
The Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens will have the spotlight all to themselves on Wednesday night.

With the NHL's other 28 teams having wrapped up play and started their All-Star break, the Wings make a rare visit to the Bell Centre for the only game of the night. It's just the third time since October 2003 that the Wings have come to town -- they've won the last two, including a 3-2 shootout win on Nov. 21, 2009.

Detroit comes to town off a 3-1 home win against St. Louis on Monday. The Canadiens have been off since winning 3-1 at Toronto on Saturday.

The NBC Sports Network will air the game in the United States, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET. TSN and RDS will televise the game in Canada.
Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
