Babcock
"I don’t think there’s one guy in the room that doesn’t think they have to get better. Howie’s one of the top goalies in the world. If you think he’s not trying to get better. Z’s one of the best players in the world, who’s trying to get better. Kronner is one of the best players in the world trying to get better. Pav is trying to get better. That’s what they do. That’s why they’re here."
- Mike Babcock

Brendan Smith will return to the lineup.

"I want to be able to help defensively, give more legs, more speed on the back end, move the puck to the forwards a little quicker. Hopefully, maybe help out offensively, too."
- Brendan Smith

"We were rolling along, winning, Smitty got hurt, and we didn't win. Now you can say, 'Oh, Big E was out and Mule was out.'
But it just goes to show you: Your back end has got to be
able to move the puck for you. Smitty can move the puck."

Stephen Weiss is out with a groin injury of his own,
but hopes to return this weekend.


"It’s just a matter of getting a couple more in to get the conditioning back and hopefully I’ll be ready to go. I don’t think Thursday, but hopefully sometime this weekend, maybe Saturday or Sunday."
