Petr Mrazek will be in goal for the third period.

Patrick Eaves is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with an MCL sprain; he's likely out for the rest of the preseason.


The Mule will be back on the ice tonight after missing Thursday's game with a hip flexor.

Stephen Weiss will center the second line, alongside
Mule and Dan Cleary.


“It's always special to play here as a visiting team; to do it with a Red Wings jersey on is going to be even more special. I'm really looking forward to it. Got the butterflies going this morning when I woke up.”
- Stephen Weiss
