For the first time in two weeks, the Red Wings will play at Joe Louis Arena. After going 4-1-1 on their most recent road trip, the 'new look' Red Wings will look to keep things going tonight as they are set to take on the New York Rangers. Defenseman Marek Zidlicky and forward Erik Cole, acquired by Detroit prior to the NHL Trade Deadline on Monday, practiced Tuesday. Cole was on a line with Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader, and Zidlicky was paired with Brendan Smith. "I'm excited about the guys; as long as they're competitive everything will work out fine," coach Mike Babcock said. The Red Wings could get captain Henrik Zetterberg back in the line up tonight, after he missed four games due to a head injury. Jimmy Howard will get the start in goal.
