When: 7:30 p.m. tonight
Where: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan
Lineups: For the Red Wings…
|Henrik Zetterberg||Pavel Datsyuk||Justin Abdelkader|
|Johan Franzen||Stephen Weiss||Daniel Alfredsson|
|Daniel Cleary||Joakim Andersson||Todd Bertuzzi|
|Tomas Jurco||Luke Glendening||Mikael Samuelsson|
|Niklas Kronwall||Jonathan Ericsson|
|Brendan Smith||Kyle Quincey|

And the Maple Leafs
|James Van Riemsdyk||Tyler Bozak||David Clarkson|

- Both teams will be rolling with basically normal lineups.
- Alfredsson will play his first game at the Joe as a Red Wing. Glendening and Jurco were both recalled from Grand Rapids to play tonight while Xavier Ouellet and Riley Sheahan were sent down. Teemu Pulkkinen was also sent down as he has finished serving a four-game suspension.
- The Leafs will be without Phil Kessel (suspension) and tough guy Frazer McLaren (undisclosed). Franson will be on the ice for the first time since agreeing to a one-year, $2 million deal.
- Howard (Wings) and Bernier (Leafs) are expected to play the entire game.
- Almqvist is replacing Danny DeKeyser (knee). The rookie will likely be continuing a push for a roster spot. Speaking of roster spots, Samuelsson and Cleary will be competing to make the final roster.
