Here are the projected lineups the Dallas Stars and Detroit Red Wings will use tonight when the teams meet at Joe Louis Arena:

One interesting note to the game will be a brother-vs.-brother battle between the Stars' Reilly Smith and the Red Wings' Brendan Smith. They met three times in the AHL this season, with Brendan's Grand Rapids Griffins beating Reilly's Texas Stars twice.

"It will definitely be special," Reilly Smith told the Dallas Morning News. "The family is driving down for the game, so I'm really looking forward to it."

Quote of the Day

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
