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.
