Report: Zetterberg still out, but Colaiacovo back

The Detroit Red Wings will be without Henrik Zetterberg again when they face the Colorado Avalanche on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN), but will get defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo back in the lineup, according to a report from Ansar Khan of mlive.com.

Colaiacovo, who missed the past 33 games with a sprained left shoulder, will replace rookie Brian Lashoff in the lineup and skate alongside Brendan Smith, coach Mike Babcock said.

Zetterberg missed Sunday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks with a groin issue that isn't quite better yet.

"Well, it's still day-to-day. I will say I feel a few percent better today than yesterday,'' Zetterberg told reporters. "That’s improvement. So we're still doing good treatment and hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow."

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
