Red Wings sticking with Saturday lineup

When the Detroit Red Wings and Phoenix Coyotes take the ice Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN) at Joe Louis Arena, both teams will be desperate for two points.

The Red Wings enter the game ninth in the Western Conference, three points behind the eighth-place Columbus Blue Jackets. The Coyotes are 11th, five points behind the Blue Jackets.

The Red Wings will use just about the identical lineup they went with Saturday in their 2-1 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks. The only change is on the fourth line, where Patrick Eaves replaces Drew Miller. Miller is out with a broken right hand sustained during the game Saturday.

Here is how the Red Wings will look Monday:

Johan Franzen - Pavel Datsyuk - Justin Abdelkader

Valtteri Filppula - Henrik Zetterberg - Daniel Cleary

Gustav Nyquist - Joakim Andersson - Damien Brunner

Patrick Eaves - Cory Emmerton - Jordin Tootoo

Niklas Kronwall - Jonathan Ericsson

Kyle Quincey - Brendan Smith

Danny DeKeyser - Jakub Kindl

Jimmy Howard

Jonas Gustavsson

Injured: Todd Bertuzzi (back), Darren Helm (back), Drew Miller (hand), Mikael Samuelsson (pectoral)

Scratched: Brian Lashoff, Carlo Colaiacovo, Ian White, Jared Coreau

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
