Welcome aboard to our first Game Thread of the season. Tonight, your Detroit Red Wings will take on the Ottawa Senators and their new bench boss, the familiar Paul MacLean, who left as a Red Wings assistant coach over the summer to take the reigns in his first NHL head coaching job.

Here's the Red Wings' lineup for tonight. Patrick Eaves will not play tonight, as he's still nursing an injury caused by being a committed hockey player and blocking a shot in the preseason.

Jiri Hudler -- Pavel Datsyuk -- Danny Cleary
Valtteri Filppula
-- Henrik Zetterberg -- Johan Franzen
Justin Abdelkader
-- Darren Helm -- Todd Bertuzzi
Drew Miller -- Cory Emmerton -- Tomas Holmstrom

Nicklas Lidstrom -- Ian White
Niklas Kronwall -- Brad StuartJonathan Ericsson -- Jakub Kindl

Jimmy Howard (starting)
Ty Conklin

The Sens will be without Peter Regin, Matt Carkner, and Jesse Winchester. Keep an eye on promising rookie Mika Zibanejad, who many are predicting to win the Calder.
