Lidstrom
“It feels good to be back, just a different feeling when you’re walking in here and you’re not a player anymore. It feels good to see the guys and a lot of the other people around the team."
- Nicklas Lidstrom

"I just saw Homer and Nick in the hallway and told them, ‘I should have loved you more when you were here.’ I miss them so much, the puck got through the point all the time and Homer got the puck back."
- Mike Babcock

"I miss being in the locker room, being around the guys and I miss the game situations too...I don’t miss the day-to-day grind of practicing, but just going out there and playing in front of 20,000 people and the intensity of the crowd."
- Nicklas Lidstrom

Gustav Nyquist was called up from Grand Rapids this morning.

Jordin Tootoo will play in his 500th NHL game tonight.


"Nashville has done tremendous things for me both on and off the ice...(but) I’m a Red Wing and as I’ve said before, I’m going to do whatever it takes to get two points every night."
- Jordin Tootoo
