"We can't afford losing games like (Calgary)...It's got to start (tonight).”
- Niklas Kronwall

"We know it's really tight in the standings, we need every point
we can get."
- Henrik Zetterberg

"We have to start fixing this right now. It's up to all of us in here. We all have to be better.”
- Niklas Kronwall

Jimmy Howard is feeling better and will be between the pipes tonight.



Coach Babcock said the defense will likely stay the same tonight as last game.

Ian White will be a healthy scratch tonight.



"I don't think it's about (White) as much as the guys in front of him. I want (Lashoff) in because the Oilers got a good power play and Lash is a good penalty killer. We want Smith in because we think he's a competitive guy and he really skates....we try to make the right decisions to give us the best chance to win."
- Mike Babcock

Patrick Eaves will be in the lineup tonight.



Jordin Tootoo may again be a healthy scratch, but Coach Babcock said he'll make a decision during warm-ups.
