Things to Watch For

Tonight’s game is the first of three in a row and four in five nights to wrap up the preseason. The Red Wings are at Pittsburgh on Wednesday, at Toronto on Thursday and wrap up the preseason at home against the Maple Leafs on Saturday. ….

Ville Husso will get his second start of the preseason in net against Chicago. Michael Hutchinson, who’s on a pro tryout contract, will also see action. Sebastian Cossa also is making the trip. …

Red Wings coach Derek Lalonde says Robby Fabbri (upper-body injury) is fine and should be available for Wednesday’s game at Pittsburgh. ….

Elmer Soderholm is back in the lineup after a knee-on-knee hit by Chicago’s Alex Vlasic on Sunday. There was no retaliation by the Red Wings at the time, as referees swiftly stepped in and Vlasic was ejected. It could be different tonight.
