Red Wings VS. Lightning

tampa vs wings

The Red Wings and Lightning Face Off at 730 tonight at the St. Pete Times forum in what could be one of the most emotional nights of the season for one man: Stevie Yzerman.
This will be the first time in 28 years that Stevie Y will not be rooting for the Winged Wheel. When Stevie left the comfort of the Red Wings organization for a GM job in Tampa over the summer, he knew that this night would come. After being drafted by the Wings in 83, after 18 years bearing that “C” above the winged wheel, tonight Steve Yzerman is hoping that the Wings will lose.
As our injury list shrinks, our game on all parts of the ice improves; and tonight we get a big part of of our defensive game back. Brad Stuart will be back in the lineup tonight as we try to put down the Tampa Bay Lightning. Our lines for tonight look like this:

Franzen-Zetterberg-Bertuzzi
Hudler-Datsyuk-Cleary
Draper-Helm-Eaves
Miller-Abdelkader-Holmstrom

Lidstrom-Stuart
Ericsson-Rafalski
Kindl-Kronwall

Howard (starting)
MacDonald

Give em Hell tonight boys! But don’t beat em too bad, let Steve Y down gently!
