Mursak
Jan Mursak will return to the lineup tonight for the first time since the season opener.

"I’m excited to be back. I’m ready….I got my conditioning back, and hopefully I can show the coach that I can play here and we’ll see how it goes tonight.”
- Jan Mursak

Babcock
"For Murs to be real good we need him to be on the forecheck, to be relentless. He’s got a great shot. He’s got to shoot the puck and he’s got to be real good defensively”
- Mike Babcock

Jimmy Howard will be in net tonight, despite leaving Tuesday’s game early with blurry vision.

Carlo Colaiacovo said he feels like he’s getting closer to his return.


"I feel like I truly am, it’s just tough to say….I keep pushing and working hard through it every day just waiting for it to tell me it’s ready to go. Could be any day now, but I really have no idea when.”
