The Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues, once longtime division rivals, play for the first time this season tonight. Detroit is ending a six-game trip, where they've gone 3-2-0 after a 3-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday. Young netminder Pete Mrazek made 25 saves, is 6-3-1, and will get the bulk of the work until Jimmy Howard (groin) returns in 2-4 weeks. "We can't be happier with the way Petr's playing," defenseman Kyle Quincey said. "We're confident going forward he can keep playing well for us."
