Pregame: Flyers @ Red Wings - 10/12

The Red Wings host the Philadelphia Flyers in their "Pink the Rink" night in support of breast cancer awareness tonight. Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard will wear a special mask, pads, blocker and glove as part of the effort.

The Wings will also roll out a series of lineup changes, as the team looks to rebound from consecutive losses to the Boston Bruins and Phoenix Coyotes.

On defense, Brendan Smith will be a healthy scratch in favor of Brian Lashoff, who makes his first appearance of the season.

In goal, Petr Mrazek returns to the Grand Rapids Griffins, with Jonas Gustavsson healthy enough to back up Howard.

Cory Emmerton, having been waived at the start of the season, also heads to GR, with Luke Glendening called up to center the fourth line. Both Mikael Samuelsson and Tomas Tatar will be healthy scratches as Jordin Tootoo joins Glendening with Drew Miller.

Todd Bertuzzi takes Justin Abdelkader's spot on the top line while Abdelkader slides down to join the second line with Johan Franzen and Stephen Weiss. Daniel Alfredsson moves down to Bertuzzi's spot with Joakim Andersson and Daniel Cleary.

Game time is 7:00 on FSD.

Ken and Mick talk about switching Glendening to W because there are so many Cs. Wonder what Tatar and Nyquist think about slots at W

Man, that first power play unit is so much better than the second.

Ooh, skipped right along the ice. Ouch.

Passing to Cleary was never an option for Datsyuk there

Video proof that Quincey did a good thing. Wow.

So much for trading Tootoo

Tootoo with just under four minutes played. I know some of that is because of special teams, but I just shake my head at it.
