Game one: Belarus vs. Sweden 3:00 p.m. ET

Sweden struggled against a strong German team but how will they bounce back against Belarus? Johan Franzen was a virtual non-factor but may be worked into the action more today against Belarus. Henrik Zetterberg and Peter Forsberg had some chemistry last time out and may be able to continue that. Belarus is fairly weak and Sweden should be able to get their game back on track.

Red Wings involved:
SWE: Niklas Kronwall, Nicklas Lidstrom, Johan Franzen, and Henrik Zetterberg.
BEL: Sergei Kolosov (Grand Rapids)

Game two: Czech Republic vs. Latvia 7:30 p.m. ET

Latvia limps in to tonight's game following a 8-2 loss to Russia. They get another tough test tonight in the Czech Republic. The Czechs beat their former countrymen Slovakia 3-1 and have a very solid line up top to bottom. Expect another big loss for Latvia.

No Red Wings involved.

Game three: Finland vs. Germany 12:00 AM ET

Finland putting a beating on Belarus but faces a much tougher German team tonight.  Finland has some great scoring talent and one of the best in net but Germany played a solid game against Sweden and could very easily do the same. Valtteri Filppula scored for Finland last time out and let's hope he does the same.

Red Wings involved:
FIN
: Valtteri Filppula
