"You have to find a way to win games. This is a big trip for us...We have to find a way to win on the road when match-ups aren’t (in our favor).”
- Mike Babcock

Brendan Smith will return to the lineup tonight.
"It's been taking some time, but I'm excited to get going here. I actually got my first point here (an assist on Nov. 19, 2011), so I like this rink. Good memories.”
- Brendan Smith

Kyle Quincey is also expected to return tonight.
“I feel great...I think the pregame skate will tell if it's good to go or not.

- Kyle Quincey

The Wings will be getting a healthy Mule back, as well.
"It's been a little bit too long. Just wanted to make sure it's healed, because you don't want to get in and then back out. I needed a little more time."
- Johan Franzen

Mike Babcock said he "heard a rumor that Colaiacovo could be back on Sunday."
"I'm definitely feeling a lot better every day. Right now, mentally the guideline for me is to shoot for Sunday and use these next couple of days to really test it and see if it's a real possibility."
- Carlo Colaiacovo



Valtteri Filppula is out tonight with an upper-body injury.
"They see a little bit of something with the AC (joint), nothing major."
- Valtteri Filppula

Ian White will be a healthy scratch tonight.



Kent Huskins will also be a healthy scratch.
