The Detroit Red Wings hope tonight is their last night in Nashville because that would mean they'd win tonight and then at home on Friday.
Dominik Hasek will get the start in net. The big roster change? Andreas Lilja is out; Brett Lebda is in. This switch makes sense because Lilja's physical presence isn't quite the necessity against Nashville like it would be against a physical team like Calgary, San Jose, or Anaheim. Lebda's speed should hopefully help against the Predators tonight.
There also is a chance that Darren Helm will be in the line-up tonight. For that to be the case, a forward will miss the game due to injury. However, we don't know who this forward is and the decision will be made after warm-ups tonight. This forward has a minor injury, but all forwards practiced this morning.
The game starts at 9pm and will be shown on FSN Detroit, CBC, and Versus. Go Wings!
