Red Wings Vs. Stars Lineup: Jimmy Howard In Net For Detroit

After shutting out the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday, the Detroit Red Wings will take on the Dallas Stars at home on Saturday, looking for their fourth-straight win. The team will be keeping the same lineup from Thursday, the biggest thing of note being Todd Bertuzzi missing another game. Bertuzzi has swelling in his ear and has a sinus infection, and he'll join Fabian Brunnstrom and Mike Commodore as scratches for the game. Commodore has been taking time here and there, but has been brought along slowly and sparingly since a big injury. Brunnstrom is having to earn every bit of playing time he gets. Jimmy Howard will be in net after recording the shutout against Edmonton, his third this season.

Below, we've got the full lineup for tonight's game against Dallas, the first meeting between the Western Conference rivals this season (Dallas took three of four games, including both at the Joe Louis Arena during the 2010-2011 season), courtesy of the official Red Wings Twitter account:
