Though they've already got a "home" game under their belts, the Red Wings have their home opener tonight hosting the Chicago Blackhawks. Like the Wings, the 'Hawks opened their season in Europe, going 1-0-1 against the Florida Panthers in Helsinki, Finland.

Tonight's matchup will be the Detroit debut for Brad May, who signed a one-year deal with the team earlier in the day. His visa paperwork came through meaning Patrick Eaves will have to wait for his first game as a Red Wing.

May will take the place of Justin Abdelkader, who was sent down to Grand Rapids to make room in the lineup when the enforcer was signed.

The Red Wings will be going with one other lineup change, adding Derek Meech to the blueline in place of Brett Lebda.

Chris Osgood will start in goal.

Former Red Wing Tomas Kopecky gave Detroit some bulletin board material, telling the Chicago Sun-Times, "It'll be fun, and more fun when we beat them." Kopecky will be playing his first career game against Detroit.

The Blackhawks will be without Marian Hossa, who also left the Wings for Chicago over the summer. He is recovering from shoulder surgery and will be out for two more months.

Game time is 7:30 with television coverage by Fox Sports Detroit.

I'll be missing the start of the game as I have a 7:00 soccer game. I'll catch back up as I can.

Killed off the penalty. There's not much to say right now. Neither of the teams are getting a huge advantage over the other.

May got in a fight and took the guy down. That wasn't very long at all.

Well Brad May's night didn't last long. Good fight though.

Huge kill on the long five-on-three.

On the Cleary cross-check... How many times do you see that exact thing happen to Homer in front of the net but no call is made?

If Gatorade hadn't invented a sleeve with a strap on it, that goal by Draper would have knocked it loose.

I was just ready to complain about the Wings passing the puck too much and the patience pays off.

What on Earth's a 'yaldo'? I haven't seen it! I've been muting the commercials. :hockeysmiley:

To me Yaldo sounds like the yokel version of Where's Waldo.

Man, after the first I was getting a little worried, but then again, we are a better team in the 2nd and 3rd. Now let's just hold onto that lead and we will be back in business. I'm glad to be back to watching the Wings I'm used to.

It looks like to Babcock, Dr. Fil will forever remain as "Fill-a-pool-a"
