The Red Wings kick off their first season in the Eastern Conference tonight, hosting new divisonal-rival Buffalo in the 2013-14 opener.

 

After spending most of the preseason banged up, Detroit is mostly healthy as the regular season begins.  Darren Helm and Patrick Eaves are on long-term injured reserve and Jordin Tootoo and Jonas Gustavsson are on short-term IR but the top six forwards and all the defensemen are fine.

 

The Wings will skate with the following lines to start:

 

Henrik Zetterberg - Pavel Datsyuk - Justin Abdelkader

Johan Franzen - Stephen Weiss - Daniel Alfredsson

Daniel Cleary - Joakim Andersson - Todd Bertuzzi

Drew Miller - Cory Emmerton - Mikael Samuelsson

 

Niklas Kronwall - Jonathan Ericsson

Danny DeKeyser - Jakub Kindl

Kyle Quincey - Brendan Smith

 

Jimmy Howard will start in goal with Petr Mrazek serving as his backup.

 

The game will be the regular season Red Wings debuts for summer free-agent signings Alfredsson and Weiss.  Everyone else in the lineup played at least one game for the Wings last season.

 

Game time is 8:00 PM on NBCSN.

I thought Emmerton had been sent to GR...was I misinformed? What's up with that?

Looks like we're taking some shots to the head that are not getting called.

Second intermission thoughts... PK is a dammed beast tonight. Alfredsson skates really smoothly. Andersson makes me miss Helm less.

Lots of people wandering around during play.  Weird night in the arena.

 

I thought Emmerton had been sent to GR...was I misinformed? What's up with that?

 

Waived and expected to be sent down but then he wasn't.  Worked out.
