Morning Skate Update


Justin Abdelkader will make his return to the lineup tonight after serving his two-game suspension.

“I’m excited for the opportunity. Hopefully I can come in and inject some energy into the lineup and help us get a win.”
- Justin Abdelkader

Mike Babcock said Patrick Eaves will be scratched tonight.

"(Eaves) played good, does what he’s supposed to, runs over people and a real competitive guy. But because I know more insider information that I’m not sharing with you, I have to have other guys to cover up for other people just in case they can’t survive."
- Mike Babcock


Carlo Colaiacovo will make his first playoff appearance as a Red Wing tonight.

"I think excited is a small word. It’s real gratifying. This is the biggest reason why I wanted to come here, to play at this time of the season for this team."
- Carlo Colaiacovo


Brian Lashoff will be a healthy scratch.

Toni Lydman will be out again for the Ducks with an upper-body injury.
