Regular season hockey is once again upon us, with the Red Wings kicking off the 2011-12 campaign hosting the Ottawa Senators.

Game time is 7:00, with the Wings suggesting everyone be in their seats at 6:50 for a pregame ceremony honoring Lokomotiv (we still haven't seen what Babs meant in saying that the Wings would be honoring McCrimmon all season long). For those watching from home, FSD's pregame kicks off at 6:00 (which means I need to get out of the office pretty quick here).

Cory Emmerton will be in the lineup tonight as Patrick Eaves and Fabian Brunnstrom are healthy scratches (Mike Babcock said he wanted a natural center on the fourth line without breaking up Abdelkader and Helm on the third line). Mike Commodore is out on D, still recovering from a bruised knee.

Khan has the lines...

Hudler - Datsyuk - Cleary
Filppula - Zetterberg - Franzen
Abdelkader - Helm - Bertuzzi
Miller - Emmerton - Holmstrom

Lidstrom - White
Kronwall - Stuart
Ericsson - Kindl

Howard
Conklin

Good job by Jimmy to hold the post on Foligno.

Cleary to the room. We'll see what happens there.

First thought on the helmet numbers... They look stupid but aren't as distracting as I'd feared.

Is there a purpose for them? I didn't even notice!

Cleary back out. Not sure if it just happened or I missed it earlier.

They say they're to help officials and media identify players.

Bert snipes it on a breakaway to get Detroit on the board. Great breakout pass.

"Todd Bertuzzi" chant going. A little quiet, though.

Not a horrible period. Could definitely get better. Lots more jump for the Wings after the goal.

Lidstrom looked like he flubbed it a little. Looked more like a forward for a second though.

Great effort by Bert in the corner to make that happen.

Kronner should have shot after that great move.

Major pressure led to that. Wings really buzzing.

Hudler found his hands, and what a steal by Pavs.

Hot damn this is a huge lead (knock on wood).

Unrelated comment, but I can definitely tell it's the first game of the season because I'm not annoyed by the same 10 songs they play inside the Joe yet.

White gets his first as a Wing. As Mickey points out, Emmerton with two points on the night.
