The Red Wings' exhibition schedule kicks off tonight in Pittsburgh against the new conference-rival Penguins.

 

As per usual, only half of the team tonight will be made up of players actually expected to play in Detroit this season, the other half will be prospects and Griffins.  The Red Wings will roll with a split squad for most of the preseason, allowing them to more easily play on back-to-back nights (tomorrow they're in Chicago) while evaluating players.

 

Tonight's roster is expected to be as follows:

 

Henrik Zetterberg - Pavel Datsyuk - Justin Abdelkader

Daniel Cleary - Joakim Andersson -  Mikael Samuelsson

Tomas Tatar - Luke Glendenning - Landon Ferraro

Anthony Mantha - Calle Jarnkrok - Jordin Tootoo

 

Danny DeKeyser - Jakub Kindl

Kyle Quincey - Brendan Smith

Brennan Evans - Adam Almqvist

 

Jimmy Howard and Petr Mrazek will split time in goal.

 

Game time is 7:00 PM.  The game will not be on TV or radio in the Detroit area but will be televised in Pittsburgh so a stream might be available somewhere.

So is Adam Almquist as impressive as his stats in this game?

I've never thought so.  There were games in GR last year that he was just terrified of contact.  By default he's probably the #8 defenseman unless the Wings clear a roster spot and sign Paetsch to a two-way deal.
