GDT: Red Wings visit Winnipeg Jets

New, comments

The Red Wings visit Winnipeg tonight to take on the Jets. Is Pavelec going to be able to stand tall in net for the Jets again? How does one do this "power play" thing and can someone please let the Jets know? Are you as sad as me that Datsyuk is out for tonight? Is Michael Frolik an actual Disney Prince in disguise?

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Wings are in Winnipeg tonight to take on the Jets. Coming off a nice 3-1 victory against the New Jersey Devils, the Winnipeg Jets are looking to continue the momentum with another win. Of note tonight is that injured Detroit star Pavel Datsyuk will not be on the ice.

The game starts at 7pm central time and can be watched on TSN3 or heard on TSN 1290.

Player to Watch

I'm going to be facetious and say keep an eye on Chris Thorburn. No real reason, I just feel like we always pick the best guy on the ice to watch when really we could be paying attention to some of the other players to see how they're doing. If he's awesome tonight I get all the credit though, okay?

If you want someone who's actually been making some pretty moves and working hard, you could always watch Michael Frolik. In the past 5 games he's gotten three goals and one assist and is playing pretty solid hockey out there. Also, this was pretty:
