|(Zetterberg's reaction upon seeing Pierre McGuire)|
The Wings are battling for a playoff spot, 4th in the Atlantic, and if the season ended now they would be playing the Boston Bruins in the first round of the playoffs. The playoff aspect makes this game even more interesting as it could foreshadow the first round.
Key To The Game
No Datsyuk, No Problems- With Datsyuk out the Wings have a major hole in their line up. Datsyuk is an amazing player and without him the Wings players will be under a lot of pressure to step up their game. But really, Henrik Zetterberg is who the Bruins need to fear. Zetterberg has been under Datsyuks tutelage, and shadow, for years. But truth is he's become an equally talented player and a huge threat to the Bruins.
