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:

RED WINGS
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.

BLUE JACKETS
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

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
