The Red Wings take on a red-hot San Jose Sharks team which has won its last three meetings after stumbling out of the gate. Meanwhile, the Wings bolted out of the gate and have lost their last two. This isn't the same Sharks team that eliminated Detroit from the playoffs last year, as they've added Brent Burns and Martin Havlat at the expense of Dany Heatley and Devin Setoguchi.

Detroit's expected lines to follow. Brunnstrom and Emmerton are the scratches tonight:

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

Lidstrom-White
Stuart-Kronwall
Kindl-Ericsson

Howard
Conklin
