Zetterberg skates again, will travel
Injured Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg (lower body) skated on his own for the second straight day, but will not play in Game 2 on Saturday afternoon at Joe Louis Arena.

Zetterberg, who missed the last two games of the regular season and Game 1 against Phoenix on Wednesday night, is still being listed as day-to-day with the injury. He will also make the trip with the team to Phoenix as he continues to show progress.

"Zetterberg's making the trip for sure," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said after the Red Wings' Friday practice. "We're hoping he's playing here soon."
Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
