Red Wings Lineup For Friday's Game Against Blue Jackets

The puck is set to drop at 7:30 p.m. eastern for the Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets, and we've got your Red Wings lineup, courtesy of Ansar Khan of mlive.com. He notes that the team is struggling with its inactivity, or rather, its impressive depth (notably on the fourth line) is almost useless when it comes down to the fact that they don't need to rotate anybody in to keep players fresh because, well, the entire team is currently fresh.

Patrick Eaves and Fabian Brunnstrom are scratches, and both are healthy. There's some quotes from the article linked above that are significant, from Mike Babcock regarding the aforementioned scratches. He notes, correctly, that both players are good and worthy of being in the lineup, but again - this team is just so good at this point in the season and it's so early, the inactivity is hurting everybody. We've got the lineup for you below:

Henrik Zetterberg - Pavel Datsyuk - Danny Cleary
Jiri Hudler - Valtteri Filppula - Johan Franzen
Todd Bertuzzi - Darren Helm - Justin Abdelkader
Drew Miller - Cory Emmerton - Tomas Holmstrom

Nicklas Lidstrom - Ian White
Niklas Kronwall - Brad Stuart
Jonathan Ericsson - Jakub Kindl

Jimmy Howard
Ty Conklin
