At 7:00 p.m. tonight, the Red Wings open the 2010 preseason against the Penguins in the new CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh. In the first of eight exhibition games to prepare for the regular season, the Red Wings will field a team that doesn't feature all of its top players, but there is definitely no shortage of talent.
Here are the forward lines for tonight's game (via the Free Press):
Johan Franzen-Valtteri Filppula-Todd Bertuzzi
Jiri Hudler-Mike Modano-Dan Cleary
Mattias Ritola-Darren Helm-Patrick Eaves
Drew Miller-Justin Abdelkader-Aaron Downey
And here are the defensive lines:
Brad Stuart-Jakub Kindl
Jonathan Ericsson-Ruslan Salei
Derek Meech-Brian Lashoff
Chris Osgood is going to be in net for the Red Wings for the first and second periods. In the third period, Thomas McCollum will be the goaltender.
