SAN JOSE, Calif. – Nearly one month after suffering a knee injury against the Hurricanes on April 6, left wing Henrik Zetterberg returned to the Red Wings’ lineup for Friday night’s Game 1 overtime loss to the Sharks.
Zetterberg played nearly 20 minutes and was plus-1 with three shots on goal. After Friday’s 2-1 overtime loss at HP Pavilion, Zetterberg answered questions in the Wings’ dressing room.
Q: How did it feel to be back out there after not playing in the opening round?
A: I was a little rusty. It was nice to be out there again. It was fun to be playing a playoff game again. I can definitely be better.
