For most of the Canes' players, tonight's game will be the only time they'll play the Detroit Red Wings this season.
But not Derek Joslin. Before being traded to the Canes from the San Jose Sharks, the defenseman faced the Wings twice, in late-November and early December. He also had an assist in each game as the Sharks and Wings split.
Joslin's scouting report for tonight: "The biggest challenge for us is to stay out of the penalty box. They are so skilled on the power play, so we will give ourselves a better chance if we stay out of the box and just play our game.
"We're a really good team. Our offense matches up with their offense. We've just got to get to their goaltender, put a lot of shots on net and be physical since they don't like to play physical."
