"I'd rather people not look at us to win," goaltender Manny Legace said. "It would be nice to come in as an underdog. I think the guys would get more motivated if we were underdogs. I'd rather they look at other people for a change." "All the teams are so different. I'm anxious to get back and see what the rosters are like," Wings captain Steve Yzerman said, before sustaining a groin injury that will keep him out of tonight's game. "There's a lot of uncertainty, but I still look for us to be a very competitive team." Due to injuries and incomplete lineups, the Wings learned little about themselves during the preseason. "Today's NHL is definitely tighter, that's the one thing you do know," Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "You're going to have to engage every night if you're going to be successful."
