HSJ tweet,

Nemeth (illness), DeKeyser (mid) & Erne (upper) all sound doubtful for Thursday. Wings have 12 F, but Blashill said Red Wings might go 11 F, 7 D at Calgary.

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The fact Taro Hirose returns to his hometown of Calgary on Thursday as an NHL player is somewhat mind-blowing to him.

Hirose was an undrafted player. He spent all four years at Michigan State, improving, tirelessly getting better at his craft.

When Hirose skates onto the Scotiabank Saddledome ice as a member of the Red Wings, it’ll be a dream come true and also, an affirmation for all the work he put in.

“You never really know what your path is going to be,” Hirose said last week, thinking ahead to the game at the Saddledome. “It’ll be pretty cool playing there, in front of the Sea of Red. I’m really looking forward to it, and a real cool experience for me and my family.”

Exact same reaction, Homers.

That’s a scary looking defense with the top two defenders out.

Green and Ericsson. That should be interesting.
