After missing the last five games due to a concussion, Milan Michalek returns to the lineup. Chris Phillips did not take part in the morning skate and won't play tonight. There was no update on Jesse Winchester, who has missed the last two games with a concussion.
It's a tribute to him, and everything he's done and deserved is coming to fruition tonight with his jersey in the rafters. He's going to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. And I said today, if he's not, take my stuff out. If he doesn't deserve to be in there first ballot, no one does. Except for (Wayne) Gretzky, I guess.
