The NHL lockout is officially over, training camps opened Sunday and the regular season is just days away.
Red Wings start the 2013 season in St. Louis on Jan. 19. Their home opener will be Jan. 22 vs. Dallas.
Because of the time crunch involved in getting a 48-game schedule in before the playoffs, the NHL didn't have room for any preseason games. But the Red Wings and FOX Sports Detroit have managed to sneak one in.
The Wings will face off against their American Hockey League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, on Tuesday at 6 p.m. The game will be played at Compuware Arena in Plymouth, Mich., and aired live on FOX Sports Detroit.
As usual, Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond will call the game, which will feature interviews with players and coaches and include some fun, not-so-usual surprises.
If you miss it, the game will re-air at midnight and then Wednesday at noon.
