Gameday Updates: Red Wings at Lightning

"It's all right Gus, you're in net so we'll score some goals for you." - Leon Halip

The Red Wings head to Tampa tonight for a chance to get three out of four points on the Florida trip. Chances it'll happen? What are you asking me that for, I'm not giving betting odds.

Red Wings

  • The Red Wings wanted to take full advantage of the Florida sun yesterday, having a short practice to maximize sun time. Mmmm, vitamin D.
  • The annual visit from the injury bug is starting to wear on the Red Wings. Stephen Weiss is out of the lineup with a groin issue; Henrik Zetterberg has been put on LTIR because of a herniated disc; Jimmy Howard tweaked his knee after making a save on Daniel "No Knees" Cleary. Hey, injury bug, you've overstayed your welcome.
  • Injured shoulders Danny DeKeyser and Darren Helm were skating after the morning skate today. DeKeyser is expected to return after Christmas against Florida while Helm doesn't have a timetable to a return yet.
  • No other updates to the Morning Skate lineup.

Lightning

It certainly won't be all sunshine for the Red Wings if they come out of Florida with just the one point from the game against the Panthers. I agree with Michelle in the Morning Skate: I'd like to keep Tampa Bay behind us in the Atlantic division standings. Keep these guys down.

GET HUNGRY! LET'S GO RED WINGS!!!
