Game #1 of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Detroit Red Wings starts tonight at 7pm. The game will be on Versus as well as FSN Detroit.
Dominik Hasek will be the starting netminder during the playoffs.
Mikael Samuelsson, Kris Draper, and Brad Stuart are expected to return to the lineup for today's game. Kirk Maltby will remain out with a pulled hamstring. It is believed that Darren McCarty will be in the lineup, but Aaron Downey may take his spot (one or the other will be a healthy scratch).
This should be a gritty series, but I think the Wings will win in five games.
