Red Wings-Blackhawks pre-season game open post:for the die-hards

The Detroit Red Wings will face off against the Chicago Blackhawks at 5 PM today (on FSD and the NHL Network U.S., and WXYT AM after the Tigers game), and despite the Detroit News's Gregg Krupa's best efforts, didn't really know the lineups for tonight's game (and there was no clarification regarding Jonas Gustavsson's groin and whether he's got a two-day tweak or a Babcockian two-week owie) until the Blackhawks' press corps leaked 'em:

Red Wings:

Goaltenders:

#34 Petr Mrazek
#35 Jimmy Howard

Skaters:

#2 Brendan Smith
#8 Justin Abdelkader
#13 Pavel Datsyuk
#14 Gustav Nyquist
#15 Riley Sheahan
#18 Joakim Andersson
#21 Tomas Tatar
#24 Nathan Paetsch
#25 Cory Emmerton
#29 Landon Ferraro
#32 Louis-Marc Aubry
#37 Mikael Samuelsson
#40 Henrik Zettererg
#41 Luke Glendening
#47 Alexei Marchenko
#52 Jonathan Ericsson
#53 Adam Almquist
#55 Niklas Kronwall

The Blackhawks' lineup has 23 skaters listed, so 5 of the players listed won't be taking part in tonight's game:

Goalies:

#31 Antti Raanta
#50 Corey Crawford

Skaters:

#2 Duncan Keith
#6 Mike Kostka (guess he's okay after being Pulkkinen'ed)
#7 Brent Seabrook
#11 Jeremy Morin
#14 Drew LeBlanc
#16 Marcus Kruger
#19 Jonathan Toews
#20 Brandon Saad
#22 Jimmy Hayes
#24 Phillip Danault
#28 Ben Smith
#29 Bryan Bickell
#32 Michal Rozsival
#34 Dylan Olsen
#38 Ryan Hartman
#42 Joakim Nordstrom
#43 NViktor Svedberg
#44 Klas Dahlbeck
#51 Brad Mills
#52 Brandon Bollig
#55 Ryan Stanton
#58 Bryan Forese
#61 Garret Ross

The refs will be Greg Kimmerly and Brian Pochmara...
And Greg Devorski and Brad Lazarowich will be working the lines.

The game summary, event summary and roster reports should assist those of you who want to follow the statistical storylines...

FYI: Wednesday's game against PIttsburgh will air on FSD+ and the NHL Nework U.S.; Friday's game against Toronto will air on Leafs TV, so I'm sure we'll find some illegal streams of the game; and Saturday's exhibition season finale in Toronto will air on the CBC and the NHL Network U.S.

If you want to discuss the game and complain about the referees wink here's your spot to do so. I know today's a Football-and-Baseball-y weekend, and that preseason games have limited appeal, but the die-hards are always welcome. Get down wit' yo' bad self in a live blog.

Hey all! Looks like Smith is up to old tricks, really needs to learn how to take the body.  Much better team effort this game though

Ericsson also started life as a Center.  I don’t know WTF Smith’s problem is.

However, I am no Ericsson fan and was actually just wondering if there was a proven good d-man available out there who could be had for a package inclduing Smith and Ericsson.

He’s a head case.  He’s been told his entire career how great he is, and can’t get it through his head that what he’s doing isn’t good enough for the pros.

Anyone know if Kassian (sp) is up for suspension for wreckless use of his stick in breaking Gagner’s jaw?

All I saw was they were reviewing it today.  I watched the game but missed the incident, but the commentators really talked it up as a bad, boneheaded move by Kassian.

Or reckless.

If Pulkinen got 4 games that incident should garner at least the same.

Smith still has only played in 62 games, regular season and playoffs combined.  I’m not saying he doesn’t need to play better because he absolutely does, but maybe give him until the end of this year to write him off.  Less than a full season’s worth of games hardly seems a large enough sample to give up on a young defenseman.

Considering Gagner’s going to be missing time and having seen the play, I’ll be surprised if Kassian gets less than 5 regular season games.  I’m not sure on Kassian’s NHL discipline history, but he’s loaded with incidents from the minors.

However, I am an Ericsson fan. He is well worth the money, and, has been rock steady.

Thats gotta be the worst part of preseason for the vets: all these young guys trying to make a name for themselves and playing with an extra edge.  Although Kassian’s not a newbie, should know better.

Been alot of these oddman rushes and breakaways this preseason.  Hope they don’t have to spend half a season cleaning that up again this year.

Maybe we could work out a trade with the Caps for Smith. You know, Mr. Smith goes to Washington. tongue wink

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related.

I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
