NHL Playoffs 2011, Red Wings Vs. Coyotes: Game 3 Preview

The 2011 NHL playoffs continue tonight as the Red Wings' series against the Coyotes moves to Arizona for Game 3. The Red Wings lead the series right now by a margin of 2-0 after wins in Games 1 and 2, and a win tonight would put Phoenix in a 3-0 hole.

If the Red Wings do get another win, it looks as though they will do it with the same lineup as the first two games. Mike Babcock doesn't anticipate any changes in the lineup, meaning there will be no Henrik Zetterberg yet again. On the flip side, that also means that Johan Franzen is expected to play despite his face being all sorts of messed up after Game 2.

For Phoenix, defenseman Derek Morris is going to be out for the third straight game in this series. Ed Jovanovski is expected to be in the lineup after being banged up in Game 2 on Saturday.

The puck is set to drop shortly after 10:30 p.m. ET. FS Detroit will broadcast the game locally and Versus will have it for the rest of the country.
