The Detroit Red Wings continue their road trip in Nashville as they take on the Predators tonight at 7 p.m. EDT on Versus. The Wings hope to extend their winning streak to two on the road, while the Preds would like to make it six straight wins.
With top-four defenseman Niklas Kronwall out for at least four weeks due to a hit that GM Ken Holland called dirty, the Wings will mix and match their defensive pairings tonight. Derek Meech will enter the lineup tonight thanks to the void left by the Kronwall injury.
Chris Osgood will start in goal tonight with Jimmy Howard slated to start on Wednesday.
You will also want to keep an eye out for Darren McCarty, who will be a guest studio analyst for Versus tonight. Will he be a homer like Kris Draper is wishing for? Will he offer some great insight into how the Wings operate?
