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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
