Morning Skate Update

Babcock
Mike Babcock says the Wings will go with the same lineup as they did in Game 4, which means Sammy will stay on first line.

“I've felt good. I shouldn't say surprising, but I felt like I've been in.
I felt fresh and like I can go tomorrow again.”
-Mikael Samuelsson told Ansar Khan

Zetterberg
“(Sammy) looked good. He skated well. He's a big body for us and he hasn't played many games this year so he will only be better with the more games he plays.”
- Henrik Zetterberg told Ansar Khan

Coach Babcock will also stick with the same
Power Play units as Game 4.
