DETROIT (AP) -The Detroit Red Wings expect to have Henrik Zetterberg in and Todd Bertuzzi out of the lineup Thursday night in Game 1 of their first-round series against Calgary.

Zetterberg, a high-scoring left wing, missed the last 19 games of the regular season with an inflamed disk in his back after being told he would be out for two or three weeks.

Bertuzzi did not play in the regular-season finale because of a concussion.

"I don't think he has any chance of playing tomorrow," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said Wednesday. "If he's feeling better, we think he'll have an opportunity to play on Sunday."

Zetterberg led the Western Conference-leading Red Wings with 33 goals and had 68 points, despite missing nearly a quarter of the regular season.
