Quincey back in for Wings
DETROIT -- While the Detroit Red Wings won't have Nicklas Lidstrom for at least two more games, they will get one veteran defenseman back in the lineup.

Kyle Quincey, who sat out Tuesday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets with a sore groin, said after the team's morning skate Friday that he feels good enough to play against Minnesota.  That prompted the Wings to send defenseman Doug Janik back to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League on Friday afternoon.

Quincey will play with Ian White. Nicklas Kronwall and Brad Stuart will be another pairing, while rookie Brendan Smith and 25-year old Jakub Kindl – playing his 100th NHL game -- will form Detroit's third defense pair.
Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
