- Damien Brunner

Lashoff

Brian Lashoff will return to the blue line tonight.


Lashoff said it was fun to be back in Grand Rapids and he got to catch a glimpse of prospect Calle Jarnkrok.

Lashoff

"(Jarnkrok) is skilled...he's got real good hands and real good vision, it didn't look like he was having too much trouble with the difference in the size of the rink and speed."
- Brian Lashoff


Ian White will be a healthy scratch.

White

Quincey

Coach Babcock said Kyle Quincey is "playing tomorrow for sure."


Babcock said he didn't want to play Quincey in back-to-back games; he wanted to play him in his homecoming in Colorado.

"It's interesting with (DeKeyser) up here...we sure like what we see, we just got to have enough courage to fire him in and get on with it."
- Mike Babcock


"I've been off for two weeks or so without a game, so just trying to make sure that I'm conditioned enough...I just want to be ready."
- Danny DeKeyser

Have the Jump Early
- Dictate the play to the Coyotes from the opening face off. Keep the foot on the gas...pedal to the metal!

Take Away Coyotes' Time and Space - Detroit can't give Phoenix the time to make plays or shoot the puck; the Wings need to keep the pressure on the Coyotes for 60 minutes.

Have a Balanced Attack - Pavel Datsyuk has put up incredible numbers against Phoenix in his career. That being said, the Red Wings shouldn't rely solely on him to carry the load. They need scoring help from everyone in a Winged Wheel sweater.
