Good morning, Detroit

For the first time on this trip the view out of the hotel isn’t much to write home about. More importantly, there’s no falling white stuff. While much of the northeast has been hammered by snow – leading to cancellations of Boston-Tampa Bay and two AHL games, including Manchester-Providence – we’ve fortunately been spared from inclement weather on this trip, other some slushiness upon arrival in Columbus. Today’s game begins at 9:30 am Los Angeles time and will be broadcast on NBC.
