After a 4-2 victory over Pittsburgh last night, the Red Wings are back in action against the Boston Bruins this evening at 7:00pm ET. We’ll be seeing (or hearing) a different group of players tonight. Here are the projected lineups from the morning skate on Wednesday:

Reacting to the lineup
All eyes will be on the top line of Andreas Athanasiou, Dylan Larkin, and Anthony Mantha. Additionally, it’s exciting to see Danny DeKeyser playing alongside Brendan Smith, a pairing which should log the biggest minutes this season in my opinion. Also, how about that second line?
The fourth line also raises some eyebrows. Dylan Sadowy is a prospect everyone is excited about, and Kyle Criscuolo was impressive in the prospects tournament. Martin Frk is waiver-eligible, and looking to find a spot on this team going into the season opener.

How to watch, or uh, listen
As of right now, it appears the game will not be broadcasted on television. You are able to listen via WWJ-AM 950, if you do a quick google search, you’ll be able to find an online stream of that. The Red Wings were supposed to be streaming the game on their website last night, but it was an epic fail. Hopefully they can get that sorted out so we can all watch the game this evening.
Update: The Bruins have announced they’ll be streaming the game on their website. We’re currently not sure if it’s going to be geographically limited to the Boston (or Brookyln) area, but at least somebody’s going to have video.
