Tonight, the Detroit Red Wings (0-1-0) head to Scotiabank Place to face off against the Ottawa Senators (1-0-1) for their first road game of the regular season. After a 3-2 loss against Toronto on Thursday, the team hopes to bounce back and keep the turnovers to a minimum after giving the puck away 19 times to the Maple Leafs.
The Senators will be without captain forward Daniel Alfredsson, who had to have arthroscopic knee surgery to remove a bone chip on Friday. He's expected to miss two weeks.
Ottawa opened their season in Stockholm, Sweden with a 4-3 OT loss to Pittsburgh and a 3-1 win over the Penguins a day later. This will be their season opener at home.
The game starts at 7pm and will be on FSN Detroit (HD) and CBC. I will be around leaving comments during the game so be sure to stop by!
