Nyquist

The Red Wings have recalled Gustav Nyquist from Grand Rapids.


"(Nyquist) has got some skill. He's obviously a real good player...in the NHL, you have to come up and grab hold of something.”
- Mike Babcock

Eaves
Patrick Eaves will not play tonight due to a sprained jaw.

Nyquist is expected to take Eaves's spot on a line with Andersson and Cleary.

Ericsson

Jonathan Ericsson did not practice this morning for personal reasons, but is expected to play tonight.


Carlo Colaiacovo flew to Toronto to get another opinion on his shoulder, and left feeling encouraged.

"He saw some thing that were of some concern. I've dealt with them, I've treated them. I've been getting myself to the point where I'm close to 100 percent."

Get Off to a Good Start
- With 3 days to rest and prepare for the Wild, the Red Wings should be fresh and ready to go. They need to come out early, feed off the crowd, and jump on Minnesota out of the gate.

Get Balanced Scoring - Detroit has scored 8 goals in their last 2 games, and everyone seems to be chipping in. Datsyuk and Zetterberg are heating up; they each scored big goals on the Western Canada road trip. That's a great sign, and the Wings need that to win on a regular basis.

Limit Turnovers, Especially in the Defensive Zone - It sounds like a broken record, but no team can win consistently when they turn the puck over. Protect the puck at all times and play a smart team game.

Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader each had a pair of goals tonight and Danny Cleary added one of his own as the Wings put up a five-spot on Vancouver. Jimmy Howard had another sensational night between the pipes in the 5-2 victory, making 33 saves and showing it will take more than the flu to stop him. And we're running out of adjectives to describe Pavel Datsyuk, who had three assists tonight and made several amazing defensive plays to show that he truly may be the greatest two-way player in the world. Tonight was definitely a thriller in B.C., and the Wings will head back to the Motor City with two huge points!

Thanks for tuning in to our Game Day Blog...We'll see you Wednesday when we take on the Wild!
