The second line strikes again. Wild up 1-0
- The last time the Wild played in Detroit, Jonas Brodin made his Wild debut and made sure Wild fans noticed him by defending very well against the likes of Zetterburg, Datsyuk and Franzen. What does the rookie phenom have up his sleeves tonight?
- Backstrom was solid against the Canucks, but has been a work horse all season with relatively few games off. How does he hold up tonight?
- Gilbert and Rupp are out again tonight (Stupid Avs). The Wild held it together in Vancouver with the line/partner changes, can they do it again?
- Last meet up at Joe Louis Arena had Russo almost combusting over bad internet access/his hate for Detroit. How does he handle his return trip?
- Do the Wild continue their great playmaking?
