Detroit heads into St. Louise to start their first decent-sized road trip of the season and to put their four-game winning streak on the line against a Blues team that's 2-0-1 since Ken Hitchcock took over for Davis Payne as their head coach. St. Louis is going to be eager to prove they can compete with Detroit. This should be a tough game.

Forward lines remain the same:

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

While defensive pairings switch up due to the loss of Ian White:

Lidstrom-Ericsson
Kronwall-Stuart
Kindl-Commodore
