The Red Wings will wrap up the second of a two-game home stand tonight as the Montreal Canadiens visit the Motor City. Detroit is coming off a shootout loss that came on Saturday night against the Jets in Jimmy Howard's first game back since missing 11 games due to a groin injury. Detroit's biggest concern is the number of goals allowed, eight in the past two games, and Coach Babcock thinks it was more of the Red Wings play rather than goaltending. Tonight's match up will be the third of the season between these top Atlantic Division rivals, Montreal getting the better of Detroit each time. Jimmy Howard will get his second straight start in goal tonight.
