Misconduct

Pregame: Sabres @ Red Wings - 10/2

The Red Wings kick off their first season in the Eastern Conference tonight, hosting new divisonal-rival Buffalo in the 2013-14 opener.

After spending most of the preseason banged up, Detroit is mostly healthy as the regular season begins. Darren Helm and Patrick Eaves are on long-term injured reserve and Jordin Tootoo and Jonas Gustavsson are on short-term IR but the top six forwards and all the defensemen are fine.

The Wings will skate with the following lines to start:

Henrik Zetterberg - Pavel Datsyuk - Justin Abdelkader
Johan Franzen - Stephen Weiss - Daniel Alfredsson
Daniel Cleary - Joakim Andersson - Todd Bertuzzi
Drew Miller - Cory Emmerton - Mikael Samuelsson

Niklas Kronwall - Jonathan Ericsson
Danny DeKeyser - Jakub Kindl
Kyle Quincey - Brendan Smith

Jimmy Howard will start in goal with Petr Mrazek serving as his backup.

The game will be the regular season Red Wings debuts for summer free-agent signings Alfredsson and Weiss. Everyone else in the lineup played at least one game for the Wings last season.

Game time is 8:00 PM on NBCSN.

I thought Emmerton had been sent to GR...was I misinformed? What's up with that?

Looks like we're taking some shots to the head that are not getting called.

Crappy looking power play!

A lot of empty seats?

Second intermission thoughts... PK is a dammed beast tonight. Alfredsson skates really smoothly. Andersson makes me miss Helm less.

Alright... Let's see what kind of finish this team has.

Knew it'd be some stupid broken play that got Buffalo in it.

Wasn't pretty but we'll take it

Lots of people wandering around during play. Weird night in the arena.

Waived and expected to be sent down but then he wasn't. Worked out.
