3 games left in preseason before the games start to count, and the Red Wings are dropping like flies. Today it was announced that Mike Commodore is out 1-3 weeks with a strained MCL, so it looks like Jakub Kindl's spot in the lineup is secure.

The Wings welcome former Norris rival Toronto to the Joe, and the Wings must think it's Opening Night with the lineup they are dressing. The Leafs are doing the normal "we're the road team so not many important players are going to dress" thing.

Here are the expected lineups:

None of us are going to be able to see the game since it's not being televised nationally, but we wanted to give you all a chance to talk about the game. We know a lot of you will likely be watching the Tigers hopefully lay a hurting on the Yankees, but feel free to stop by and say hello. Go Wings and Go Tigers!
