Pregame: Senators @ Red Wings – 10/17

It’s the beginning of the end, as tonight the Red Wings host the Ottawa Senators in the final home opener at Joe Louis Arena.

After opening up with a pair of uninspiring losses in Florida, the Wings are tweaking their lines once again.

For the third consecutive game, different defense pairings will be used

Petr Mrazek starts in goal.

The Senators are 2-0 having opened with a pair of extra-time wins over Toronto and Montreal.

Stupid stat of the Day: The Red Wings are 20-15-6 in games played in an arena during that arena’s final season before demolition.

Game time is 7:30 PM on FSD.
