Red Wings vs Sharks: GDU, Lineups, Keys to the Game

Winging It In Motown

Game Day Updates

All four of the Wings’ players who were put on the Taxi Squad yesterday are off it now, so no Renouf, Barber, Witkowski or Fulcher as emergency callups available, but Nick Leddy is active on the Wings’ roster sheet today.

In terms of the Wings, it seems that the diggers were all quiet about who actually skated for the team this morning. The lines here are based on cobbled-together updates and practice notes

  • Suter didn’t practice yesterday but Blashill called “maintenance day” and said he’d be available for this game
  • Leddy DID practice yesterday but Blashill wouldn’t confirm he’s in the lineup
  • Zadina found himself replaced by Veleno on the PP unit but we’ll see if that sticks as well.

For the Sharks – no horse in this race:



Tyler Bertuzzi – Dylan Larkin – Lucas Raymond
Vladislav Namestnikov – Pius Suter – Robby Fabbri
Adam Erne – Michael Rasmussen – Filip Zadina
Givani Smith – Joe Veleno – Sam Gagner

Danny DeKeyser – Moritz Seider
Marc Staal – Filip Hronek
Nick Leddy – Gustav Lindstrom

Alex Nedeljkovic
Thomas Greiss

San Jose

Jonathan Dahlen – Tomas Hertl – Timo Meier
Alexander Barbanov – Nick Bonino – Noah Gregor
Andrew Cogliano – Jasper Weatherby – Matthew Nieto
Jonah Gadjovich – Scott Reedy – Jeffrey Viel

Jacob Middleton – Erik Karlsson
Marc-Eduoard Vlasic – Brent Burns
Radim Simek – Nicholas Meloche

[Note – the Sharks’ reporters have been talking about San Jose shaking up their pairings of late so take that for what you will]

Get the Special Teams Figured Out

Not just the power play. If you’re going to play a game trying to create no goal differential at even strength then you have to create a positive one on special teams.

Play as a Five-Man Unit

The Sharks are going to show us how teams use active defense. I’m ok trying to show them first, to be honest.

Just Win, Baby
