Tale of the Tape: Red Wings host Blackhawks
Tale of the Tape: Detroit Red Wings host Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday Night Rivalry.

The Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings no longer reside in the same division. But the Red Wings' move to the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference as part of the NHL’s realignment won’t diminish the feelings between the teams when they meet in this week’s Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN2).

It’s the first meeting between the teams since their seven-game showdown in the Western Conference Semifinal series last spring, when the Blackhawks lost three of the first four games but won the final three on the way to the Stanley Cup.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
