One More Before The Show

The Wings will have one final dress rehearsal before the regular season opens this week, and here’s who the Winged Wheelers will roll out against the Penguins:


Pavel Datsyuk-Henrik Zetterberg-Tomas Holmstrom
Johan Franzen-Valtteri Filppula-Mattias Ritola
Jiri Hudler-Mike Modano-Dan Cleary
Drew Miller-Darren Helm-Jan Mursak


Nicklas Lidstrom-Niklas Kronwall
Brad Stuart-Brian Rafalski
Jonathan Ericsson-Ruslan Salei


Chris Osgood
Jimmy Howard

Sidney Crosby is not expected to play tonight because of a hip injury, and the master of the kneejob, Brooks Orpik, is out with a “groin injury”. For the Wings, the Bertuzz’ is still out with a stiff back, while Patrick Eaves will rest up his sprained ankle for another day. Justin Abdelkader will rock out in the press  box tonight.
