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
Injured: Todd Bertuzzi (back), Darren Helm (back), Drew Miller (hand), Mikael Samuelsson (pectoral)
Scratched: Brian Lashoff, Carlo Colaiacovo, Ian White, Jared Coreau
