While Detroit struggles with being winless in six, they welcome the Anaheim Ducks into town for game three of a six-game Detroit homestand. The Ducks have also struggled after a strong start, going 1-4-3 in their last eight games. Tonight, one team that hasn't deserved to win a lot of games recently is going to get two points tonight.

Here's the last lineup they skated with at practice, updated with today's lineup news that Bertuzzi will sit out with an illness, Eaves continues to nurse a sore back and Commodore is in for Kindl. No idea if Brunnstrom will be on the top line:

Danny Cleary - Pavel Datsyuk - Fabian Brunnstrom(?)
Valtteri Filppula
- Henrik Zetterberg - Johan Franzen
Jiri Hudler
- Darren Helm - Justin Abdelkader
Andrew Miller
- Cory Emmerton - Tomas Holmstrom

Nicklas Lidstrom - Ian White
Niklas Kronwall
- Brad Stuart
Jonathan Ericsson
- Mike Commodore
