The Red Wings received a boost Saturday in a 4-3 win against the Florida Panthers with the return of forward Henrik Zetterberg. "It's huge. Hank brings so much to this team, both on and off the ice,'' said center Gustav Nyquist. "With him and Pav playing you can really feel the difference. That's why they're our leaders."

In addition to getting their captain back, they could get a couple more key players back. Though goalie Jonas Gustavsson (sore groin) didn't practice Sunday and won't play Monday, Jimmy Howard, who has missed three weeks with a sprained left MCL, will dress and could get the start. So it'll be either him or Petr Mrazek in net tonight. Darren Helm will also be back in for the first time since injuring his shoulder a few weeks ago.
