For the second time in two weeks, the Avs get to show their stuff in front of a nationwide TV audience, as those in the US get to see the game on Versus, (TSN2 will air the game here in Canada, using the Versus feed) please no Joe Beninati.
Valtteri Filppula notched two saturday night against the Hawks to give himself 3 points in two games. Always a threat when on the ice. (totally mailed that one in)
Peter Budaj will get his first start this season. Considering we had to wait till November 4th to see him play last season, chalk one up on the 'Smart Move' board for Sacco
This is the first of back to back games for the Avs this week (they play the Islanders and Devils Friday/Saturday) Detroit doesn't play again till Thursday night in Dallas
Prediction - Avs 4 Wings 3 But the Avs will spot the Wings at least one first period goal.
