Detroit also lost captain Henrik Zetterberg Saturday and Teemu Pulkkinen was held out of practice Sunday afternoon with a possible leg injury. "I don't know if we'll make any decisions until tomorrow," general manager Ken Holland said regarding Zetterberg. That being said, Detroit will look at avenge a 3-2 loss against the Ducks at The Joe back in early October, and will look to take their third straight on the road. Jimmy Howard will be between the pipes.
