Henrik Zetterberg is out tonight with a lower-body injury.

Ken Holland said they saw "something" on Zetterberg's MRI, but it was "nothing significant."

"This is what I do know about groins: if you missed today you’re probably not playing tomorrow...Like all groins, day-to-day for 10 days.”
- Mike Babcock on Zetterberg

Jimmy Howard will be back in net tonight.



Carlo Colaiacovo will be in the lineup
tonight for the first time since January.

Colaiacovo will replace Brian Lashoff in the lineup tonight, who was sent down to Grand Rapids yesterday.



"It's been a long time so I'm really looking forward to it. I put in my time last couple of games with the Griffins and felt really good. Looking forward to carrying that momentum into tonight.''
- Carlo Colaiacovo told Ansar Khan

Colaiacovo will play alongside Brendan Smith.



Kyle Quincey was on the ice today wearing a full cage. He says he hopes to play Thursday in Phoenix.

Todd Bertuzzi was on the ice this morning, skating and moving much better than he has in awhile.



"Had a good skate yesterday, skated pretty hard and good today. Hopefully, everything stays the course and hopefully get back within a week or so."
- Todd Bertuzzi told Khan

Come Ready to Play
- Three early goals did the Red Wings in vs Chicago. Detroit afford that vs Colorado. They need to have the jump early and dictate the play to the Avs.

Play Together Defensively - Everyone needs to help each other.The goalies need to make big stops, the forwards need to help the defensemen, and the defensemen need to clear rebounds and clear the front of the net.

Find Ways to Score - Detroit scored just 1 goal in the last 2 games.  They need to generate more offense, keep grinding, and create opportunities to put it in the net.
