Datsyuk
Pavel Datsyuk said he is a game-time decision and that he “feels better every day.”

"We need everybody to make a contribution. Our last game, Emmerton’s line and Andersson’s line were outstanding, and that effort from your third and fourth lines should have won you the game.”
- Mike Babcock

“I know what (Kent) is going to do: he gives me an extra penalty killer and takes some minutes away from Kronwall.”
- Mike Babcock


Jakub Kindl will be a healthy scratch.

“(Kindl) moves the puck real good, and yet was involved in too many plays going in the wrong direction. But he really moves the puck. We have to tighten up tonight.”
- Mike Babcock


Darren Helm said all tests on his back have come back negative.

"Seen a couple of doctors. They believe it will get better. It's just a matter of time. They don't really know when. They said it's going to be good. I just have to stay happy and be positive about that.”
- Darren Helm


"I have been feeling better the last few days, looking at next week maybe doing some more physical activity and see where that takes us. Just wait and see is all they can do.”
