Every year they are predicted to fall from grace and yet, they never do.

Last year we were close in the standings up until the point that we had to play each other. They beat us, jumped to number 1 in the Central and we were never able to catch them.

Now we are tied for first and will battle it out for the first time on Friday.

Are we finally better than they are?
We are a lot closer to them than last year, this I am confident of. I think last year we were a bad match with Detroit because we were penalty prone and their power play was dominant. This year, their PP is down and our penalties aren't as frequent.

While I think they aren't much worse than last year, I think our team, overall, is a full step better. Detroit was clearly better than us last year. This year, that's just not the case, in my opinion.
