Zetterberg last played for the Red Wings on Feb. 8. He played one game for Sweden in the 2014 Sochi Olympics before leaving the tournament because of a back injury. He had surgery to repair a herniated disc on Feb. 21.

Zetterberg started the game on a line with Pavel Datsyuk and Justin Abdelkader. He skated with them in the morning skate before leaving the arena to visit with the team doctors, presumably to go through the testing protocol so he could be cleared to play.

He had 48 points in 45 regular-season games, and has 114 points in 123 career games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Quote of the Day

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
