"I really believe we have played a lot of good hockey here of late, we haven't scored and let it in too easy. We have to keep building on our game and I think that's what we're doing. We've got a game here tonight against Carolina, Carolina plays fast and we've got to be prepared to go." - Mike Babcock

Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg
will be reunited on tonight's top line.
