Grind Line to be reunited

Just read on mlive.com the Grind Line - Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby and Darren McCarty - will be reunited during the Red Wings - Kings game tonight.

Johan Franzen's knee injury has led to the reunion of The Grind Line, as coach Mike Babcock plans to use Kris Draper with Kirk Maltby and Darren McCarty, a unit that was first formed during the 1996-97 season and last played together for one shift on March 28 vs. St. Louis, when the trio started the game.
"Grinding. I expect them to be good,'' Babcock said. "We need four lines competing and working hard and being energized and making a contribution. The way you play and the minutes and the wear and tear on the opposition is important.''

Woo Hoo!
I'll be listening tonight for sure, and I expect more coverage of this tomorrow.
