Some notes on tonight's game:
- Johan Franzen will not play for the Red Wings tonight due to a hip flexor injury (per MLive's Ansar Khan). In addition, Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa, and Brandon Pirri will sit out for the Blackhawks due to injuries.
- Ouellet and Sproul will make their unofficial NHL debuts tonight along with Athanasiou, Jurco, Callahan, Pulkkinen, and Coreau. Detroitredwings.com's Bill Roose writes that Ouellet and Sproul, who will play in Grand Rapids this season, have essentially been joined at the hip since they were drafted by the Red Wings in 2011.
- Blackhawks prospect Teuvo Teravainen will play on the top line with Bryan Bickell and Patrick Kane tonight.
- Patrick Eaves is expected to get some work as the net-front man on the Red Wings power play unit.
- This will be a rematch of an epic playoff series between both teams that took place this past May. Since then, the Wings have jumped to the Eastern Conference. The two old rivals will meet again on September 22 in a preseason game before meeting just twice in the regular season.
