Osgood/Conklin - i forget who they said's going to get the start
Injured: Holmstrom, Cleary, and Chelios (from that preseason game in MTL)
With the injuries to Homlstrom and Cleary up front, Detroit really doesn't have 4 strong lines like they'd want. In fact, Meech, who is generally the team's 7/8th defencemen, is forced to play forward (not because the Wing's don't have better players to call up but because they're too close to the salary cap).
Babcock will still attempt to roll 4 lines, but you'll likely see some minor line juggling that occurs throughout the game.
This is a game that I've been looking forward to as i always enjoy playing the East, especially against another Original 6 team.
The good news for Montreal is that this will be Detroit's 1st game back from a Westrn Canandian road trip, the bad news is that Detroit's game seems to be rounding back to shape.
Well, here's to a good game.
