from Ansar Khan of Mlive,
Stephen Weiss will be centering the top line tonight as the Detroit Red Wings make their home preseason debut against the Boston Bruins (7 p.m., no TV).
It'll be Weiss' first game (exhibition) at Joe Louis Arena as a Red Wing. He'll be flanked by Johan Franzen, who is making his preseason debut after missing a couple of games due to a hip flexor, and Daniel Cleary.
Daniel Alfredsson, who started training camp on the second line with Weiss and Franzen, remains idled with a sore groin.
“It's always special to play here as a visiting team,'' Weiss said. “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.''

There is not TV or radio coverage from the Bruins, so Ken Kal (1270am) is your only choice tonight to catch the game.
