Pregame: Red Wings @ Panthers – 10/15

Coming off a disappointing 6-4 season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Red Wings are making quick adjustments.

Andreas Athanasiou not only steps into the lineup, but jumps onto a line with Henrik Zetterberg and Frans Nielsen.  Justin Abdelkader drops down to the fourth line and Steve Ott will be a healthy scratch.

On defense, Danny DeKeyser will be paired with Mike Green while Brendan Smith joins Alexey Marchenko.

Petr Mrazek gets the start in goal again.

Game time is 7:00 PM on FSD.
