from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
Filip Zadina, Dennis Cholowski, Libor Sulak, Filip Hronek and Joe Hicketts are among the players on the roster for Friday’s game at Toronto (7:30 p.m., NHL Network). Wings coach Jeff Blashill and Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock have agreed to field lineups heavy on NHL regulars that night, though the Wings will have a young defense because of injuries to veterans....
The Wings take a 6-0 record into the final series of the preseason.
“We’ve taken steps forward in the things we’ve made important,” Blashill said Thursday. “We’ve hounded the puck tons, we’ve won lots of loose puck battles. We wanted to make a point in the last couple games to spread the o-zone out and we did that. So we are making steps in the right direction.”
Below, the Leafs lineup for tonight.
