Manny Legace got the start. The Wings are 24-4-3-0 at home (1st in the NHL). They have 31 games remaining, only 10 of which are at home.

A few days ago the Wings signed a deal with the Grand Rapids Griffins to be their sole AHL affiliate begining next season. Currently the Wings share the Cincinnati team with Anaheim. The Wings will be able to have 13 prospects in Grand Rapids, including more than one goaltender. The Griffins will take care of the rest of the roster. This was a problem with the Cincinnati team because of limited roster space. 1\24 Brett Hull got two goals and salvaged the point for the lackluster Wings 2-2 with the Sharks.

Detroit and Anaheim currently share the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks. Grand Rapids' affiliation agreement with Ottawa expires after this season.
