Tonight’s Matchup

    The Detroit Red Wings host the Dallas Stars for the final time this season. Tonight’s game marks the fourth game in six nights between the two teams. The Stars won the first two games of this series while the Red Wings won Thursday’s matchup 7-3. Jakub Vrana led the surge by scoring four goals for the Red Wings. Tonight is also Hockey Fights Cancer night for the Red Wings. The Red Wings will be wearing their lavender jerseys and using lavender tape on their sticks for warmups.

    Players to Watch Tonight


    Joe Pavelski is my player to watch on the Stars. Pavelski is leading the Stars in goals scored as well as total points this season. With key players missing extended time for the Stars this season it was the perfect time for Pavelski to step up. At 36 years old, Pavelski might only have a  few seasons left, but he can still keep up with the rest of the league.


    Michael Rasmussen is my player to watch on the Red Wings. Rasmussen has struggled his first two years in the NHL. Last season he only scored 18 points in 62 games while this season he has 10 points in 33 games. I am picking Rasmussen because last game he looked good. With all the forwards injured in Detroit right now, Rasmussen has a perfect chance to end the season on a high note. Rasmussen and Vrana looked great together on Thursday night and hopefully that will continue tonight.

    Tonight’s Outlook

    After the Red Wings beat Dallas on Thursday, the Stars will be firing on all cylinders tonight. The Nashville Predators are now four points ahead of them in the standings for the final playoff spot. The Red Wings will have to stay disciplined and come out ready to play. They have been notorious for having slow starts. Another slow start tonight would result in a rough game to watch. Every point counts for the Stars and the Red Wings have the chance to be heartbreakers if they win again tonight.

    Puck drop is scheduled for 7:00 PM EST. The game is available to watch on BSDET and BSSW+.
