tweaking his knee in practice, but will have an MRI tomorrow.


"I don’t think I’m that concerned about it. I don’t think it’s going to
be anything over the top where I’m going to be out a long time."

Danny DeKeyser skated,
but does not think he'll be ready to play just yet.


"(My shoulder) is starting to feel a lot better; shooting the puck well, starting to take some slap shots and just getting more comfortable... it'll still be a little bit, but hopefully not too much longer."
- Danny DeKeyser

Play 60 Minutes - The team needs a good start, but they also need to finish. The Wings have to find ways to keep the lead when they have it.

Do your Job - With all the injuries, you can't try to do it all yourself. Trust your teammates and trust in the abilities of one another.

Solid Goalkeeping - The Lightning will get their scoring chances tonight. Detroit will need Gustavsson to make timely saves and keep them in the game.
