Pregame: Hurricanes @ Red Wings – 10/27

Back home from their Western Canadian road trip, the Red Wings host the Carolina Hurricanes tonight at Joe Louis Arena.

Less than a month into the season, it will be the third and final matchup between the two teams. The Red Wings won their first meeting in Raleigh while the Hurricanes claimed the meeting in Detroit.

The Red Wings will remain significantly shorthanded, as they were in Vancouver on Saturday. Blueliner Mike Green will be out two to three weeks with an upper-body injury and defenseman Kyle Quincey is out for at least a week undergoing concussion protocol. Brad Richards also remains on injured reserve with a back injury, in addition to Johan Franzen (concussion) and Pavel Datsyuk (ankle).

Detroit makes one lineup change up front, with Tomas Jurco replacing Landon Ferraro on the fourth line.

Petr Mrazek gets the start in goal.

Game time is 7:30 PM on FSD+.
