After last night's disappointing display against the Washington Capitals, the Jets look to redeem themselves in Detroit against the Red Wings. The injury bug has taken an atrocious toll on the Jets so far with Bryan Little, Shawn Matthias, Drew Stafford, and Tyler Myers all on IR, Mark Stuart day to day and Matthieu Perreault and Joel Armia leaving Thursday's game.

The one positive of this, is that the Jets are being forced into the youth movement that was desperately needed. Nic Petan was just called up to the team, but it's unknown if he draws in tonight.


Detroit Red Wings:

Nyquist - Nielsen - Larkin

Tatar - Zetterberg - Abdelkader

Athanasiou - Helm - Sheahan

Miller - Glendening - Ott

DeKeyser - Green

Ericsson - Marchenko

Smith - Kronwall



Winnipeg Jets:

(My best guess)

Connor - Scheifele - Wheeler

Laine - Lowry - Ehlers

Petan - Copp - Dano

Tanev - Burmistrov - Thorburn

Morrissey - Byfuglien

Enstrom - Postma

Melchiori - Chiarot

Who Do We Hate?:

Niklas Kronwall is making his season debut tonight, so a good razzing to start his year is a good idea.

Watch out for my on site tweets during the game at @BrianFromAIH.
