James Reimer
James Reimer is expected to start for Toronto.

The Wings skated with different D pairings... Kronwall was with Smith, Ericsson with Kindl, and Quincey with DeKeyser.

It looks like we'll have the same lineup tonight as last game, which means Stephen Weiss, Dan Cleary, and Brian Lashoff will likely be the healthy scratches.
