Babcock

Coach Babcock said the same lineup will be in for Game 1 as it was down the stretch.


“You have to play (Anaheim) hard, have to play them strong. You have to cut off their cycle early. You just got to slow them down.”
- Dan Cleary told Ansar Khan

“We don't go into it as a huge underdog. We think we're a good team.”
- Dan Cleary told Ansar Khan


“It’s no surprise that Pav and Z are our best players, they constantly are night in and night out. The same goes for (Perry and Getzlaf). Perry is one of those guys that has a nose for the net, and Getzlaf is
more of a passer.”
- Jimmy Howard told Ansar Khan

Abdelkader

“Both teams have some high-powered skill. At the same time, both teams play well defensively and don’t give up much.”
- Justin Abdelkader told Khan


Todd Bertuzzi will be a healthy scratch tonight.

Continue to Play Well Defensively
- Detroit has given up just 14 goals in regulation in their last 11 games. Plain and simple, don't change a thing.

Best Players Need to Play Well - Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk combined for 18 points in the last 4 games. They came through when the playoffs were on the line. They need to continue their strong play into the playoffs.

Get Off to a Good Start - Sometimes in playoff hockey, the home team stumbles out of the gate in Game 1. The Wings need to get after the Ducks early. It's easier to play with the lead than playing catch up.

The most wonderful time of the year has arrived. The time of year when every shift means more, every goal means more, every game means everything, and the time of year when one play here or there can determine whether a team achieves hockey immortality on Lord Stanley's Cup or has some extra unwanted tee time. It's the postseason; a place where stars become legends and a place that's become a routine accomplishment in Hockeytown for more than two decades.

This year has been an injury-filled transition year for the Red Wings, who squeaked into the postseason on the last game of the year, but none of that matters now; what matters is the Wings are in a 16-way tie for first and are the same number of wins away from hoisting Lord Stanley again as any team left standing. Tonight, they'll try to take one step closer by taking the opening game of the first round series against the Ducks.

Welcome to the Detroit Red Wings Game Day Blog, where you can get behind-the-scenes information, thoughts from players and staff, and up-to-date news on anything and everything Red Wings on game day.

You can watch tonight's 10:30 PM game on NBC Sports Network or Fox Sports Detroit, or TSN for our Canadian viewers, or tune in on 97.1 The Ticket.
