The Wings lost their first preseason matchup against the Bruins 4-3 in overtime on Saturday and are back for a rematch tonight. Though there was no broadcast of that game, you can catch the highlights here. With the Griffins training camp getting underway today, the Wings made another round of roster cuts Saturday evening.

The Wings had Sunday off so there are no practice lines yet to indicate what lines Jeff Blashill will go with tonight, but assuming we see mostly the players who didn't play on Saturday, here's the possible lineup.

The Lineup (UPDATED AT 10:55AM WITH MORNING SKATE LINES)

Forwards

Tomas Jurco Dylan Larkin Tomas Tatar
Tyler Bertuzzi Andreas Athanasiou Anthony Mantha
Zach Nastasiuk Tomas Nosek Mitch Callahan
Drew Miller Joakim Andersson Danny Cleary

Defensemen

Niklas Kronwall Jonathan Ericsson
Xavier Ouellet Alexey Marchenko
Brian Lashoff Nick Jensen

Goaltenders

Jimmy Howard (starting)
Thomas McCollum

Zach Nastasiuk and Xavier Ouellet both make their preseason debuts tonight. Those top 3 forward lines are Ooh la la! Jurco + Larkin + Tatar?! Oh hell yes! Basically I want want want to see those top three lines in NHL action. It doesn't look like we'll be able to watch, so that really sucks big time. I love that Blashill will at least give it it a try in the preseason and see what it looks like.

Bruins Sunday practice roster:

Forwards: Tyler Randell, Brian Ferlin, Chris Kelly, Austin Czarnik, Matt Beleskey, Anton Blidh, Max Talbot, Brett Connolly, Ryan Spooner, Joonas Kemppainen, Frank Vatrano, Zac Rinaldo, Loui Eriksson, Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak, Jimmy Hayes, Alex Khokhlachev

Defensemen: Zach Trotman, Linus Arnesson, Adam McQuaid, Joe Morrow, Matt Irwin, Torey Krug, Kevan Miller,Tommy Cross, Chris Casto, Colin Miller

Goaltenders: Tuukka Rask (starting), Jonas Gustavsson, Jeremy Smith
