Justin Abdelkader spoke briefly on his hit on Toni Lydman that led to his suspension for Game 4.

“I want to reiterate that there was no intent to injure. I don’t mean to injure anyone, put anyone at harm. I have respect for every one of the players in this league...I play a hard game, I play physical. Things happen really fast out there.”
-Justin Abdelkader told Ansar Khan

“I hope he’s back right away and he’s not injured. It’s an
unfortunate play.”
- Justin Abdelkader told Ansar Khan

Mikael Samuelsson will play up with Datsyuk and Zetterberg in
place of Abby tonight.

Find Ways to Score
- Get to the front of the net, in the dirty areas, retrieve rebounds to get second and third scoring chances. The team has to find a way to get inside on Anaheim.

Stay Out of the Box - Penalties really hurt Detroit last game. Given that Anaheim’s Power Play is one of the best in the playoffs so far, the best way to kill penalties is to not take them at all.

Get Solid Goaltending - Jimmy Howard needs to have a good game tonight and the team needs to play well in front of him. Defense usually is key to winning in the playoffs, so it’s important to get good D tonight.

After losing Game 3 and one of their first-line forwards in the process, the Red Wings will aim to bounce back tonight sans Justin Abdelkader and tie the series at two games apiece. Abby was suspended for two games for what was deemed an illegal hit to Toni Lydman, though some of the Wings' brass seemed to disagree with the ruling.

"I watched the hit again today. Holy mackerel. I don't know what you're going to be suspended for," Babcock said. "Now if you turn the video around and you pretend like there was contact to the head, maybe you can find something. ... I think it was shoulder to shoulder - bent knees going into a guy, exploding through him."

"It's a hard thing to talk about when it's your own teammate, but certainly Abby has no history of this," Detroit right wing Daniel Cleary said. "He's not a guy that targets people, but it was a hard hit."

Detroit will undoubtedly miss Abdelkader's physicality, but given the way the season has gone in Hockeytown, the Wings should feel right at home playing with key guys on the shelf.
