Morning Skate Update

"They have real good specialty teams and significant skill level, so we got to not worry about them, we got to worry about the way we play… got to get back to the details of our game without the puck and continue to be hard on the other team's goal and D.”
- Mike Babcock

"I think we’ve been solid in the back. We’ve divided up the ice-time a little more with this six D here and I think as a D unit we’ve all been playing better. Me and Kronner work well together and that’s partly why it’s been working well for me.”
- Jonathan Ericsson

Ian White will again be a healthy scratch tonight.

"We’ve been playing pretty solid defensively, not letting in too many goals, so it's tough to change the defense up… I'm confident I can contribute. I'm sure, from speaking with them, they made it clear they want to keep me around”
- Ian White



Kent Huskins is expected to be a healthy scratch tonight.

"We enjoy playing on the same line with each other, and I know we enjoy it off of the ice hanging around the locker room. Both (Tatar and Andersson) are great people and I just enjoy playing with them."
- Patrick Eaves



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

"He’s very easy to play with, which is awesome. He’s a big man that can skate and he’s responsible defensively. That makes it really easy to play with, and then his skill level is awesome."
- Patrick Eaves on Joakim Andersson
