Henrik Zetterberg will return to the lineup.

"I'm feeling good. I'm excited to be back playing. I missed two games and it' s been a week since I played, so I'm ready to get back at it."
- Henrik Zetterberg

Damien Brunner will not play tonight due to a lower-body injury.

"I tried. I thought it's going to be better but obviously it felt not that good. I hope it's going to be better tomorrow."
- Damien Brunner



Brian Lashoff will return to the blue line tonight.

Lashoff said it was fun to be back in Grand Rapids and he got to catch a glimpse of prospect Calle Jarnkrok.



"(Jarnkrok) is skilled...he's got real good hands and real good vision, it didn't look like he was having too much trouble with the difference in the size of the rink and speed."
- Brian Lashoff

Ian White will be a healthy scratch.



Coach Babcock said Kyle Quincey is "playing tomorrow for sure."

Babcock said he didn't want to play Quincey in back-to-back games; he wanted to play him in his homecoming in Colorado.



"It's interesting with (DeKeyser) up here...we sure like what we see, we just got to have enough courage to fire him in and get on with it."
- Mike Babcock

"I've been off for two weeks or so without a game, so just trying to make sure that I'm conditioned enough...I just want to be ready."
- Danny DeKeyser
