The overnight report: Red Wings-Lightning set-up and Red Wings-Hurricanes non-game wrap-up

The Detroit Red Wings will rebound from perhaps their most unusual non-playing-but-preparing-to-play situation when they battle the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday evening (7:30 PM EST on FSD/Sun Sports/TVA Sports/97.1 FM), with the Wings hoping to snap the Lightning's 7-game home winning streak against Detroit.

The Red Wings' game against Carolina was postponed due to poor ice conditions on Monday evening, but the team went through the motions of holding a game-day skate and preparing throughout the day as if they were playing a game, so it remains to be seen whether the Wings will hold a morning skate today (they probably will)...

And it remains to be seen how the team will re-set mentally as they haven't been through this situation before.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
