Morning Skate Update

Mike Babcock said he's going with the same lineup as last game.

Todd Bertuzzi isn't ready tonight, but hopes to be within 24 hours.

“I'll be ready to play tomorrow...I needed another hard skate and that's what we just finished...I really wanted to play today, but I needed to skate hard with Tom (Renney).”
- Todd Bertuzzi

“I can't come in and not be ready to play a full 60 and help out, contribute, be big down low, finish my checks... 
I just need to go out and keep it simple.”
- Todd Bertuzz



“Bert's been a huge loss for us...He brings experience and calmness on the bench and then you factor in his play and his size...
and his shootout prowess.”
- Dan Cleary

Mikael Samuelsson is ready to go, but will be a
healthy scratch tonight.



“Back to normal. I think I have conditioning...I believe I can play...I'm ready whenever they want.”
- Mikael Samuelsson

Drew Miller's broken hand will keep him sidelined for four to six weeks, but he won't need surgery.



“It'll just be in a cast four to six weeks. We're hoping for four...Pound your calcium, your vitamin D, and do the bone stimulator as much as I can.”
- Drew Miller
