- Niklas Kronwall

"We have to start fixing this right now. It's up to all of us in here. We all have to be better.”

Howard

Babcock

Coach Babcock said the defense will likely stay the same tonight as last game.


Ian White will be a healthy scratch tonight.

White

Babcock

"I don't think it's about (White) as much as the guys in front of him. I want (Lashoff) in because the Oilers got a good power play and Lash is a good penalty killer. We want Smith in because we think he's a competitive guy and he really skates....we try to make the right decisions to give us the best chance to win."
- Mike Babcock


Patrick Eaves will be in the lineup tonight.

Tootoo

Jordin Tootoo may again be a healthy scratch, but Coach Babcock said he'll make a decision during warm-ups.

Play a Complete Game
- Compete hard for 60 minutes. Make every shift count. Grind it out for three periods and don't take shifts off.

Protect the Puck - Turnovers were costly in the last game vs Calgary, especially in the 3rd period. The Wings need to do a better job taking care of the puck tonight.

Strike on Scoring Chances - Make the most of scoring opportunities. The Wings have scored 3 or more goals just once in their last 8 games. They'll need to put the puck in the net tonight against this young and skilled Oilers team.
