The Red Wings are back in action after a 3 day layoff. The Wings head west for the first of two Western Canadian road trips this season. The Wings typically have issues on this trip, sweeping it once in over 20 years. The last time these teams met, Todd Bertuzzi sniped a goal top corner and Johan Franzen played pinball off Mikka Kiprusoff's head to lead the Wings to a 4-2 victory. Most importantly, Jimmy Howard stood on his head in that game, and with Chris Osgood nursing a sore groin, we're all praying that Jimmy's bad back has healed enough for him to play 3 games in 4 nights on this trip. No changes to the Wing lineup, so here are your lines tonight:

Holmstrom-Datsyuk-Zetterberg
Franzen-Filppula-Bertuzzi
Cleary-Modano-Abdelkader
Miller-Helm-Eaves

Lidstrom-Ericsson
Stuart-Kronwall
Kindl-Salei

Howard
