Tonight is a meeting of two Original Six teams at Joe Louis Arena as the Red Wings host the Canadiens, better known as the Habitants. (Ce soir, c'est la rencontre de deux six équipes originales au Joe Louis Arena que l'hôte Red Wings les Canadiens, mieux connu comme les Habitants.)

Okay, I decided to have a little fun with Google Translate and put some of the preview in French.

Notes: This is the first meeting at Joe Louis Arena between these teams since 2010…Daniel Alfredsson returns to the Red Wings lineup after sitting out with back spasms…Todd Bertuzzi is a healthy scratch tonight (possible that he could be moved by the trade deadline?)…Max Pacioretty played at the University of Michigan…Carey Price will likely be Canada's starting netminder at the Olympics…P.K Subban won the Norris Trophy last season…Canadiens coach Michel Therrien was the head coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins when the Wings faced them in the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals.

Prediction: The Wings are riding high after a big win on Wednesday, while the Canadiens sliding backwards. Did a win over the Chicago Blackhawks give the Wings a confidence booster? Our guess is that it did.

Make It: Red Wings 3, Canadiens 2

Allez Red Wings!
