The Detroit Red Wings play three home games this week, but the most important upcoming date on the calendar is Monday.
That's when the NHL's trade deadline arrives. The Wings are looking to make some deals and pick up future assets. The most prominent names mentioned in trade rumors are goaltender Jimmy Howard, winger Gustav Nyquist and defenseman Nick Jensen.
They'll try to block those thoughts when they host the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday in the second game of a five-game homestand.
