The Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues will be featured on NHL media conference calls today. St. Louis coach Andy Murray will be available at 1:30 p.m. ET, followed by Blues forward Patrik Berglund at 1:45 p.m., Red Wings coach Mike Babcock at 2 p.m. and Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom at 2:15 p.m.

The calls will be streamed live on NHL.com beginning at 1:30 p.m.

The Red Wings and Blues will open their regular-season schedules Oct. 2 and 3 at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm in the two-game 2009 Compuware NHL Premiere-Stockholm. The series is a homecoming for Lidstrom and Berglund, both natives of Vasteras, Sweden. Lidstrom will be starting his 18th NHL season, all with the Red Wings, and needs three points to reach 1,000 for his career. Berglund earned All-Rookie Team honors in 2008-09 after recording 47 points (21-26) and leading the Blues in plus-minus (plus-19).
Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.

— Lightning forward J.T. Brown after his first Media Day experience on Tuesday in preparation of Game 1 on Wednesday
