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

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
