Preview:

Last game was a somewhat slow affair that showed plenty of good stuff from the rookies and veterans playing at Training camp. Tonight will appear to be more of the same as Detroit looks to continue the success in preseason they've been having, most recently coming off of a 4-2 win against the Penguins.

The Bruins meanwhile will be icing an almost entirely different group than they did last time, as more players return to Boston or are given a shot to truly show their stuff as pre-season moves on. Most interestingly, tonight begins what Malcolm Subban is hoping is a fruitful season in Providence or even as a backup's backup, having his season cut short due to a clavicle injury.

Who will win and gain a spot? Who will have to wait a year? Tune in (or log on) to find out!

Names to Look out for:

  • Zach Senyshyn has been taking shifts on the fourth line during the morning skate. Expect hot takes, if nothing else, about his game.
  • Ryan Spooner and Matt Beleskey return to the lineup. Tryout Peter Mueller will be playing as right wing for them
  • Colin Miller and Adam McQuaid will be in tonight's lineup as names you already know.  Matt Grzelcyk, Linus Arnesson, Chris Casto and Jeremy Lauzon are the prospects in the D Corps tonight
  • There is a reasonably good chance that, like the last game, Daniel Vladar could play the final period.
