The Red Wings begin the 2009-2010 season today in Stockholm, Sweden, taking on the St. Louis Blues in the first game of a neutral site home-and-home series between the two teams.

Excluding last year's Winter Classic, this is Detroit's first neutral site game since they picked up a 3-0 win over the Hartford Whalers in Cleveland on February 24, 1994. In all the Red Wings are 8-2-3 in games played outside the home team's city (including one Chicago "home" game played at Detroit's Olympia Stadium, also played on February 24, this time in 1929).

The Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reported this morning that Derek Meech and Patrick Eaves will be the healthy scratches today for the Red Wings. This means the fourth line will be Justin Abdelkader, Kris Draper and Kirk Maltby.

After missing Wednesday's exhibition against Farjestads BK with the flu, Chris Osgood is scheduled to start in net.

Sweet, Chris Mason gets the start for the Blues so the Wings don't have to face Conklin.

Globe Arena has the benches on the near side of the ice in relation to the cameras, like Rexall Place in Edmonton. Always confusing.

Holy crap. It didn't work but Bertuzzi just made a great move. Overskated the puck, reached his stick back between his legs and flipped it on net.

Damnit. Blues score, McClement from Winchester. Abdelkader was on Winchester but Oshie came in to put a pick on Abs to free up Winchester for the pass.

Ericsson ties it up! Knew one of the Swedes would have to come through.

I'm totally getting his name on my next jersey, with the Premiere patch.

Great work by Draper for that goal. And by the referee helping him out.

Maltby! Shorthanded goal! That's why he's in and Eaves isn't.

First Draper zooms past someone on the outside and now this? Wow.

As was said over at A2Y, "What is this, 1997?"

Wings blow a late five-on-three but they were moving the puck pretty well.

Leino! Power play goal!

Catmandu says "It's a good thing he's on the team this year."

Good Mason's wearing a mask, because that was daylight robbery.

Blues on the power play. That's why the Wings needed to be better with their power plays. Ugh.

That was like the Kariya of old, that trademark laser wrister.

Way to clear the slot, dumbasses. Ugh, Bert should have had that cleared.

Lazy play by the Wings costs another goal. What a f*cking mess.
