Background
The Capitals have won five of their past seven and are 7-4-1 since replacing coach and former Wing Glen Hanlon with Bruce Boudreau. Swedish phenom Nicklas Backstrom ranks third on the team and third among NHL rookies with 21 points.

The snowstorm didn't have any effect on preparations for the Wings, who had a regularly scheduled day off Sunday. Tomas Holmstrom (knee) said Saturday he was optimistic he'd play against the Capitals. While Holmstrom could be ready soon, Kris Draper (knee) could return later in the week. Kirk Maltby (back) continues to be out indefinitely. Former Wings prospect Tomas Fleischmann is finding a home in Washington. The Wings traded the young center, along with draft picks, for Robert Lang in 2004. He has five goals and five assists in 30 games

Tomas Holmstrom said after the morning skate today that he'd be in tonight when the Red Wings host Washington. Holmstrom has missed two games because of a sore knee.Kris Draper, out since Nov. 27 with a sprained knee, had another good practice, and could go tonight if needed. But since the Wings have points in nine straight games, there's no hurry, so Mike Babcock said Draper would be back Wednesday or Thursday.

That should still allow him to get into two games before the Christmas break. It does not look like Kirk Maltby, out since Nov. 27 with a sore back, will return before the break. He hasn't skated since a brief experiment Dec. 3, so is still at least a week away.


Other stats:

Valteri Filpulla has scored 2 goals on penalty shots in the past 3 games. The last game vs Florida featured the first -ever Red Wings game in which they received 2 penalty shots! Flip was successful while Pavel was unable to bury the puck in the 5-2 victory for the Wings.

Kudos to Teeman for the Sig

Dom's gonna do something crazy today. Gaborik is one thing, Ovechkin is another.

I see like a 6-2 win.

I like your thinking-hope you're right about everything. If Dom did something totally crazy to get everybody going that would be so awesome. I'm still loving he's bowling the other players moment. I think he's trying to combing the 2 sports. laugh.gif
