Box score

THROWBACK THURSDAY: Ex-Wings voice Bruce Martyn on why Gordie Howe was greater than Wayne Gretzky

Game notes: In the first game as wings for newly-acquired Wings forwards Jakub Vrana and Richard Panik, they'll get a nice introduction to the "original six" rivalry with the Blackhawks. The Wings sit at the bottom of the NHL's Central Division; the Blackhawks are four points out of the fourth and final divisional playoff spot.
