DETROIT -- Here is how the lineups could look for tonight's game between the Detroit Red Wings and visiting Tampa Bay Lightning. The game marks the return to Detroit of Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
