The overnight report: Red Wings-Lightning set-up and Red Wings-Hurricanes non-game wrap-up

The Detroit Red Wings will rebound from perhaps their most unusual non-playing-but-preparing-to-play situation when they battle the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday evening (7:30 PM EST on FSD/Sun Sports/TVA Sports/97.1 FM), with the Wings hoping to snap the Lightning's 7-game home winning streak against Detroit.

The Red Wings' game against Carolina was postponed due to poor ice conditions on Monday evening, but the team went through the motions of holding a game-day skate and preparing throughout the day as if they were playing a game, so it remains to be seen whether the Wings will hold a morning skate today (they probably will)...

And it remains to be seen how the team will re-set mentally as they haven't been through this situation before.

Red Wings-Hurricanes game-day articles: Green out, Lashoff questionable

Updated 4x at 1:41 PM: The Detroit Red Wings face the Carolina Hurricanes this evening (7:00 PM on FSD Plus/FS Carolinas/97.1 FM), and the teams' morning skates revealed the goaltending match-up (Cam Ward vs. Jimmy Howard) as well as Mike Green's absence from the Wings' lineup due to an undisclosed injury.

Based upon the Wings beat writers' Tweets, it sounds like Green may not play again until after Christmas, and Brian Lashoff may miss tonight's game after taking a puck in the face during the morning skate. If that happens, Nick Jensen will step in.

The Red Wings will also attempt to snap Carolina's 9-game home unbeaten streak (8-0-and-1) tonight, and then the team heads to Tampa Bay for a Tuesday meeting against the Lightning.

After the Canes' morning skate, CarolinaHurricanes.com's Michael Smith posted the Canes' probable lines...

Mike Green's status is up in the air this morning, and the Wings have recalled Nick Jensen from the Grand Rapids Griffins,  so the Wings may be without their #1 defenseman this evening and tomorrow, when the Wings face the Tampa Bay Lightning.

MLive's Brendan Savage sets up tonight's game via a game preview...

* The Hurricanes are 8-0-1 in their last nine home games dating back to Nov. 12. During that stretch, team they've beaten include Tampa Bay, Florida, Montreal, San Jose and Washington. The Lightning are the only team among those five not holding down a playoff spot. Carolina is 9-3-1 at home.
