The Wings open there pre-season with thrashing of Minnesota 6-1. Franzen with 2 goals and an assist, Datsyuk with 1+2, Chelios with 1+1, and Homer with 3 assists. Grigorenko had an assist and Sopel, who is on tryout basis scored for the Wings. Good beginning. If we get points from Franzen, Grigorenko, and Chelios on reguar basis - watch out the rest of the NHL.
