Here's hoping the Wings get some redemption from last year run-in against San Jose.  They should after a relaxing week off.  You'll recall, the Wings were gassed when they arrived in San Jose a year ago after flying through the night from Phoenix, where they'd just finished a seven-game series.  Four one-goal losses and one lopsided victory later, the Wings were done.  Don't forget Zetterburg is back too.  He returns after missing six games with a sprained left knee.
