Howard

"It's really close...hopefully by the end of the weekend...Pretty much all the little stuff (is left)."
- Jimmy Howard on potentially signing a contract extension


"I wanted to be here. I get along great with everyone here. I believe in this organization and I think we're going to get the job done."
- Jimmy Howard

Babcock
"Howie has worked hard and the organization has confidence in him. It's important for us. We need good goaltending. Just how much parity there is, we need him each and every night and he's been excellent for us."
- Mike Babcock

Damien Brunner will return to the lineup tonight after battling a lower-body injury, which has resulted in some line shuffling for tonight.

Brunner

Babcock

"We put Mule in (at center). We’re trying to get Filppula to help us out too, so we moved him to the (third line) and maybe they can generate some offense there with Brunner back."
- Mike Babcock


Brendan Smith will be back in the lineup tonight after being a healthy scratch Sunday.

Ian White will be a healthy scratch tonight.

Compete Hard
- Detroit worked hard against St. Louis. They need to be at that same level to beat the Sharks, who have been one of the hottest teams in the NHL of late.

Score Goals - The Red Wings have played well defensively lately, but they've had a tough time scoring. Detroit needs to find ways to score tonight; get people to the front of the net, get second and third opportunities, and connect on the Power Play.

Need Solid Goalkeeping - Jimmy Howard has been very good for the Wings. He needs to continue his fine play again tonight against a potent Sharks offense.
