Scouting the Red Wings - LA Kings Insider

The Detroit Red Wings, coming off a 4-0 victory over Anaheim last night, are expected to make two changes tonight, with Chris Osgood starting in goal and Kris Draper (who hasn’t played this season because of a groin injury) going into the lineup. The Red Wings didn’t have a full morning skate today, but Helene St. James of the Detroit Free-Press made an educated guess as to what the lines might look like…

Henrik Zetterberg-Pavel Datsyuk-Dan Cleary
Johan Franzen-Valtteri Filppula-Todd Bertuzzi
Jiri Hudler-Justin Abdelkader-Drew Miller/Patrick Eaves
Kris Draper-Darren Helm-Tomas Holmstrom

Nicklas Lidstrom-Brad Stuart
Niklas Kronwall-Ruslan Salei
Jonathan Ericsson-Brian Rafalski

Chris Osgood
