Today we've got an (almost) nationally-broadcast game on our hands, as the Blackhawks send their B-team into Detroit to tussle with a Red Wings scrimmage squad built of both Red and White components

Here's the Blackhawks' lineup according to their website:

FORWARDS
12 Beach
29 Bickell
13 Carcillo
67 Frolik
39 J. Hayes
16 Kruger
72 LeBlanc
22 Mayers
23 McLean
37 Pirri
43 Saad
28 Smith
25 Stalberg
DEFENSE
56 Connelly
46 Lavin
8 Leddy
20 Lepisto
5 Montador
34 Olsen
GOALTENDERS
30 Emery
53 Salak

 

Also according to their website, a fun fact:

Forward Ben Smith scored his first career NHL on Apr. 8, 2011 in Detroit.

Damn you, Ben Smith! We'll get you for scoring your first career NHL against us!

Expected lineup for the Wings is as follows:

Filppula-Zetterberg-Franzen
Miller-Abdelkader-Bertuzzi
Nyquist-Emmerton-Brunnstrom
Conner-Andersson-Mursak

Lidstrom-White
Ericsson-Kindl
Smith-Commodore

Conklin
McCollum

This is most of the White team lineup, but notable changes are that Miller is on the 2nd line in place of Helm (with Abdelkader moving to center) - Emmerton and Brunnstrom will play to get a longer look, as will Conner and Mursak. On the defensive side, the Brendan Smith-Mike Commodore pairing joins to make what could be a full NHL-caliber defense.
