Potential lineups for Wings, Jackets
Here is what the Red Wings and Blue Jackets could look like when they take the ice Tuesday in Columbus:

Valtteri Filppula - Henrik Zetterberg - Jiri Hudler
Danny Cleary - Justin Abdelkader - Todd Bertuzzi
Drew Miller - Darren Helm - Johan Franzen
Tomas Holmstrom - Cory Emmerton - Jan Mursak

Niklas Kronwall - Brendan Smith
Jakub Kindl - Brad Stuart
Doug Janik - Ian White

Joey MacDonald will start in goal, with Jimmy Howard the backup.

Smith was called up from AHL Grand Rapids to replace Kyle Quincey, who is out with a groin injury. Janik was recalled when Nicklas Lidstrom's bruised ankle was too sore for him to play tonight.

R.J. Umberger - Derick Brassard - Rick Nash
Vinny Prospal - Mark Letestu - Cam Atkinson
Ryan Russell - Ryan Johansen - Derek Dorsett
Colton Gillies - Derek MacKenzie - Aaron Johnson

Fedor Tyutin - Nikita Nikitin
Jack Johnson - James Wisniewski
John Moore - Brett Lebda

Curtis Sanford will start in net, with Steve Mason backing him up.
Quote of the Day

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
