After tweaking his groin in the penultimate preseason game, Stephen Weiss will be in the lineup tonight centering the second line, a group with high expectations.

"I think the sky's the limit for us. To be able to play behind Pav and Z and Abby is going to be huge for us. We got to take advantage of that and make sure we're responsible defensively and supporting them as much as possible."
- Stephen Weiss

"Obviously, Mule is the key, the driving force in my opinion. He can be a dominant player. We’ve got to get him going every time, because if he goes every day, it makes it easier for Alfie and Weiss. That’s an important group for us."
- Mike Babcock

Daniel Alfredsson will also make his debut tonight as a member of the Red Wings.

Keep Emotions In Check - The adrenaline will be flowing tonight as always on opening night in front of the home crowd. Stay calm and focused.

Trust Your Teammates - When emotions are high, sometime players try to do more than they need to do. Stay within your game.

Create Scoring Opportunities - Ryan Miller is a solid goaltender, one of the best in the business.  The Red Wings need to get shots through and bear down on their chances when they get scoring opportunities.

Do It Again - The Wings played hard and fast last night, out shooting Toronto, 37-19. They need to come out and try for a repeat performance.

Play Together - Keep building that chemistry and work together as a team.

Make It Count - While preseason standings don't matter much come season time, these games are important to learn tendencies and get ready mentally when the lights come on. Let's get a good effort in tonight and be ready for Wednesday.
