The Wings said Datsyuk will be in the lineup for Game 5 we'll believe it when we see it. But Detroit is desperate to have him back in the game. Without him, they've struggled the last two games. Of course, how well he performs will depend on how well his foot injury has healed but any Datsyuk is better than no Datsyuk.
Who's more mature?
For Detroit, maturity may be a bad thing as age is starting to show against the young Penguins. For Sidney Crosby and the Penguins, the lessons they learned last year made them wise and may have contributed to their "never give up" attitude that evened up this series.
Which goalie will stand out?
It's been a tale of two goalies this series. On one hand, there's Marc-Andre Fleury who let some easy goals get past him before really turning it on in Pittsburgh. On the other hand, Chris Osgood started out stellar before allowing in easy goals. So which goalie will be on top of their game and which one will flounder?
Will Detroit fans give the Wings a boost?
After dropping two games on the road, the Wings are coming back to the friendly confines of Joe Louis Arena. There's a reason they call it Hockeytown and the Wings probably hope that means the fans give them the hope they need to get back in this series.
Will Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin stay hot?
It was the Sid and Evgeni show in Game 4. Both had a goal and an assist each in the game and were finally showing their Stanley Cup finals potential. But being on the road for Game 5 may put a damper on their scoring.
