Cholowski (upper-body) will return to the Red Wings lineup on Monday.

As expected, the rookie defenseman will draw back into the Red Wings lineup in Montreal. Cholowski has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury but will replace Danny DeKeyser in tonight’s lineup. He has one goal and two assists in his first three games of his career. Look for him to log massive minutes tonight after averaging 22:10 TOI/GM so far.

DeKeyser (upper-body) will not play Monday in Montreal.

DeKeyser was forced to leave Saturday’s game in Boston after playing just 1:31 TOI and did not return. Head coach Jeff Blashill told reporters that DeKeyser is going to see a specialist on Tuesday and that will help determine how long the seventh-year defenseman will be out. Dennis Cholowski will replace DeKeyser vs. the Canadiens.

Cholowski (upper-body) will likely play vs. the Canadiens on Monday.

Cholowski has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury, but is expected to play on Monday. Jeff Blashill wouldn’t go as far as to confirm Cholowski’s return, but he would replace Danny DeKeyser if he does play. The rookie defenseman has had a great start to his NHL career, picking up one goal on five shots and two assists in three games.

Bernier will start Saturday against the Bruins.

Bernier allowed three goals on 24 shots in the Red Wings loss in Los Angeles last Sunday. Jimmy Howard started each of the last two games, but will give way to Bernier this afternoon in Boston. The Red Wings don’t have the firepower to match-up with the Bruins, making Bernier a risky option on a busy Saturday.

Howard will start Thursday vs. the Maple Leafs.

Howard allowed two goals on 27 shots in the Red Wings 3-2 shootout loss in Anaheim on Monday. Howard has played well so far this season, stopping 61 of 66 shots (.924 SV%), but has a terrible matchup tonight with the high-powered Maple Leafs in town. Toronto is averaging 5.00 goals per game and their power-play is clicking at 50 percent.
