Morning Skate Update


“We have to look after our own business. That's the main focus for us, regardless of what they do. As long as we play our game and play hard for 60 minutes we'll be OK.”
- Niklas Kronwall told Ansar Khan

Jimmy Howard gets the nod in net tonight.

Miikka Kiprusoff will be between the pipes for the Flames.

Kyle Quincey will be back in the lineup tonight after being a healthy scratch last game.



Carlo Colaiacovo will be a healthy scratch.

Mikael Samuelsson skated alone after practice today.



Jordin Tootoo will join Colaiacovo in the press box as a healthy scratch.

Patrick Eaves is back in the lineup.



Darren Helm didn't go with the Wings on the trip; the team didn't want to aggravate his back. He is skating in Detroit.

A couple members of the Wings brass weighed in on Johan Franzen heating up down the stretch.



“I think Mule's been good. We played him at center, we played him at wing, changed lines. I thought him and (Valtteri Filppula) in Chicago, with (Daniel Cleary), were our best line.”
- Mike Babcock told Khan

“(Mule) has been important for us, scoring some key goals down the stretch and everybody knows how he plays in the playoffs.”
- Valtteri Filppula told Khan
