Detroit

\ Not to be lost in Ovechkin’s first trip to Detroit or Backstrom playing against Hasek and the Seven Swedes is Tomas Fleischmann’s first game in Joe Louis Arena. He was drafted by Detroit in 2002 and traded to the Caps in the Robert Lang deal during the great salary purge of Spring 2004. Fleischmann went to two training camps with the Red Wings at Traverse City, Mich.\
