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

You could feel it. You could feel that they were going after each other and trying to win the game for their team.
