Misconduct

Ericsson to Return Tonight

For the first time in quite awhile, the Red Wings will be facing a team with more players out to injury than Detroit has as they host the Carolina Hurricanes tonight.

The Red Wings will get Jonathan Ericsson back into the lineup, with Doug Janik being sent back to Grand Rapids.

This gives Detroit only five injuries - Andreas Lilja, Johan Franzen, Jason Williams, Niklas Kronwall and Tomas Holmstrom.

The Hurricanes, meanwhile, have six regulars out of the lineup - Chad Larose, Scott Walker, Joe Corvo, Sergei Samsonov, Tuomo Ruutu and Erik Cole.

Jimmy Howard gets the start in net for the Wings, likely going up against Carolina's Cam Ward as former Red Wing Manny Legace is not expected to start.

Much needed goal for Lidstrom! 1 - zip.

Big sigh of relief to get Nick off the schneid.

I'll be damned, Miller on the power play worked.

Sad thing is, I don't want Lilja back. Don't show him practicing on the ice!

I do, I'd prefer Lilja to Lebda at this point.

Ahhh, I forgot about him. That's a really tough choice, but I guess I'll do agree with you on that point! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

That was almost a really nice play for Pavs and Fil.

Miller *really* working on the power play. Wow.

This is the Dan Cleary story, right?

Alright, I'll catch the rest on the radio, I've got a soccer game to get to.

Carolina got a goal. Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad. But I didn't see. I just hope the Wings won't give them the chance to tie it up.

Zetterberg makes it 3-1! I feel better now.

Catching what I missed right now, glad to see the Wings held on though.
