Pregame: Red Wings @ Penguins – 9/16

The Red Wings’ exhibition schedule kicks off tonight in Pittsburgh against the new conference-rival Penguins.

As per usual, only half of the team tonight will be made up of players actually expected to play in Detroit this season, the other half will be prospects and Griffins. The Red Wings will roll with a split squad for most of the preseason, allowing them to more easily play on back-to-back nights (tomorrow they’re in Chicago) while evaluating players.

Tonight’s roster is expected to be as follows:

Henrik ZetterbergPavel DatsyukJustin Abdelkader
Daniel ClearyJoakim AnderssonMikael Samuelsson
Tomas Tatar – Luke Glendenning – Landon Ferraro
Anthony ManthaCalle JarnkrokJordin Tootoo

Danny DeKeyserJakub Kindl
Kyle QuinceyBrendan Smith
Brennan EvansAdam Almqvist

Jimmy Howard and Petr Mrazek will split time in goal.

Game time is 7:00 PM. The game will not be on TV or radio in the Detroit area but will be televised in Pittsburgh so a stream might be available somewhere.
