Following two days off after a home opener loss to the Dallas Stars, the Red Wings are back at it tonight hosting the Minnesota Wild.
Returning from injury for the Wings are Todd Bertuzzi, Darren Helm and Jakub Kindl. Patrick Eaves will be a healthy scratch to make room for the returning forwards, as Gustav Nyquist has already been returned to the Grand Rapids Griffins. Ian White's injury in the Dallas game makes room for Kindl.
Per the Red Wings' Bill Roose, the lines will be as follows...
Brunner - Zetterberg - Franzen
Bertuzzi - Filppula - Datsyuk
Abdelkader - Helm - Cleary
Miller - Emmerton - Tootoo
Kronwall - Lashoff
Quincey - Smith
Huskins - Kindl
This will be the first visit of the season for the Wild and free-agent additions Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. Depending on who you believe, either the Wings were right in it until the end in vying for their services last summer or never had a chance because they had decided to go to Minnesota together.
Game time is 7:30 on FSD+.
