Marc-Andre Fleury starts in net
- Daniel Alfredsson (groin), Jakub Kindl (hip flexor), and Jonathan Ericsson (leg) will not play tonight due to injuries. Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk, and Niklas Kronwall were given the night off by Mike Babcock (they are expected to play Friday). Sheahan and Ouellet were recalled from Grand Rapids to play tonight.
- Mrazek will get the start in net over Howard, as there is no reason for Howard to start every preseason game.
- The Penguins appear to be going with a regular lineup at least in terms of forwards, as this is their last preseason game.
- In terms of other injuries, Darren Helm (groin) said that he is feeling much better, but isn't likely to play for the rest of the preseason.
