However…they come into the Joe tonite considerably hotter than the Wings (I know, I know…tell me who isn’t). The Wings defeated Dallas 4-3 October 27th in their only meeting thus far.
Dallas has won five of their last seven. They scored 4 PP goals Friday against LA, but also gave up 3. Traditional Wing biotch Marty Turco will be in the nets for Dallas tonite, after spending all but three minutes of the Stars’ last three games riding pine.
Turco has a 2.97 goals-against average, an .892 save percentage and a 1-7-5 record in 14 games against the Red Wings. But coach Dave Tippett believes it’s important to see how his goalie responds to the situation.
“I’m more for throwing him into challenges than take him out of challenges,” Tippett said. “Challenges build people.”
Wings’ first game on Versus this year. Start time: 1900 EST.

About Abel to Yzerman
Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
