The Red Wings look to rebound from their awful showing to open the season in St. Louis on Saturday as they visit the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight.

 

They'll be doing so even more banged up than they were on Saturday.  Todd Bertuzzi remains out with mono and Jakub Kindl's going injury hasn't improved enough for him to play.  On top of that, Jan Mursak is expected to miss significant time with a shoulder injury suffered on Saturday and Jonathan Ericsson may be unable to go due to an injury suffered in practice on Sunday.  To round things out, backup goalie Jonas Gustavsson tweaked his groin after taking over for Jimmy Howard in the Detroit crease against the Blues, so he's also out.

 

Defenseman Brian Lashoff has been called up from Grand Rapids and will slide onto the third defense pairing if Ericsson is unable to play.  He joins goalie Tom McCollum, who was called up to replace Gustavsson on the Red Wings' bench.

 

Patrick Eaves will get into his first game in 14 months to cover for Mursak.  Eaves looks like he'll slot in on the fourth line with Drew Miller sliding up to Mursak's spot on the third line.

 

Game time is 7:30 PM with TV by both FSD and NBCSN.

Ericsson is out tonight.  Lashoff makes his NHL debut.

Completely unnecessary fight off the bat.

And not even a good one!

 

The new reply update feature thing is really cool (even if it's not new anymore!)

Ian White may be the only Wings defenseman to have successfully held the puck in at the point this season, though.

Think it was added late last season.

Leaving your feet to hit Tootoo doesn't work, you just sail over him.

Dominated but didn't score, sticking to the script.

Way to go Lashoff!  Opportunity and sh*t.

I guess Ericsson can stay hurt, huh?
Who are you and why are you so perky?

And Ian White is not totally useless.  Nice effort by Franzen on that play.

Smith and Quincey burned again.  Atkinson pretty quick.  Jimmy sucking on breakaways this year.

Damn.  Wings not capitalizing on their own power plays looks bad right now.

Um...  Why was Howard on his back for that goal?

Thought for sure I'd be bitching out Kronner right now for not shooting.

Franzen better on D than most of the blue line late in the OT.  Great diving play to block the clearing attempt.
