Pre-game notes: Eaves out, starting goalies, etc.

Patrick Eaves will be out of the line-up tonight following a hit to the head in the loss to Edmonton. Eaves is definitely out but the more surprising thing is who might be in for him. Jonathan Ericsson, according to Ansar Khan, might be filling in for Eaves as a forward. Many know that Ericsson started originally as a forward before transitioning to defense. Who knows, what if it turns into a huge bonus and he is great? I doubt it, but you never know.

Calgary won last night against San Jose (of course) so even with a point from the tie, the Wings are tied in points but ahead in the standings by way of the number of games played. 

Roberto Luongo will start for the Canucks tonight. Luongo has a 37-19-2 record with a 2.45 GAA. 

Jimmy Howard will start his 18th straight game in net for the Red Wings. He didn't get much support from the Detroit offense last night and he'll need much more support tonight against a tough Vancouver team.
