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

"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.



"Went and did a whole bunch of tests yesterday and they all came back on the good side of things…but there is no worries now that all the tests came back positive.”
- Jimmy Howard

Johan Franzen will miss tonight’s game with a lower-body injury.  


"Hopefully (by this weekend)…I’ve been pushing real hard the last 3-4 days. It feels better to me, definitely.”
- Johan Franzen

Patrick Eaves will be a healthy scratch.



Kent Huskins will play tonight.

Jakub Kindl will be a healthy scratch.



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.”
- Carlo Colaiacovo
