Daniel Alfredsson will not play tonight; he's out with a back injury.

Mike Babcock said Alfie "needed another day"
and Joakim Andersson will take his place.

"Right now, and when I first heard about it, it’s just exciting...Just play my game, so be smart in all three zones and get some pucks to the net, be good on the penalty kill, be good in the lanes and be in front of the net when the puck gets there."
- Joakim Andersson

Andersson will likely play alongside Helm and Jurco, but Mike Babcock said that may change throughout the course of the game.
