The New York Rangers visit Joe Louis Arena tonight as the Red Wings host their second exhibition matchup of the season.
Detroit will be playing using their “White Team” lineup, with Chris Osgood and Thomas McCollum splitting time in goal.
Henrik Zetterberg, who was expected to lead the White Team, will miss the game while resting a groin injury that flared up before training camp. He will be kept out of the next two games.
The lines announced before Zetterberg was removed from the lineup were as follows:
Todd Bertuzzi-Henrik Zetterberg-Dan Cleary
Ville Leino-Valtteri Filppula-Jason Williams
Johan Ryno-Justin Abdelkader-Kirk Maltby
Mattias Ritola-Cory Emmerton-Jan Mursak
Niklas Kronwall-Doug Janik
Brett Lebda-Brad Stuart
Derek Meech-Jakub Kindl
The game will be televised in New York on MSG. It will not be on TV or radio in Detroit.
