Zetterberg 

.
“Everything will move faster, a smaller rink and a little more physical. But he is smart enough…it’s not like I’m worried how he will do. He is smart and will do the adjustment quick.”
– Zetterberg on Damien Brunner


   Howard

.
“It's going to be a lot of fun tonight. I'm looking forward to watching him. What a great way to break through in the NHL, playing on a line with Pav and Z.”

Jimmy Howard on Brunner

Brunner  

.
“It's definitely fun to have the opportunity to play with a guy like (Datsyuk). Just try to get open out there and I'm pretty sure he will find me.”

   Babcock

.
“Bert’s got mono and when we talked yesterday we knew something was wrong...so he’ll miss a chunk of time.”
– Mike Babcock

Helm  

.
“He’s got mono? Uh oh! I’m lucky I wasn’t kissing him…Hopefully he can fight off that virus or whatever it is quick and get back out here.”

Darren Helm on Bertuzzi


   Babcock

.
“Mursak’s in, Eaves is out (tonight). One guy hasn’t played hockey in a year…(Mursak) just went to Austria, he played great. He thinks like he’s a player in this league...here it is. Grab onto it. Hold on tight.”

– Mike Babcock


Helm  

.
“I glided for a good half-hour, pushed off strongly a few times. It felt good, though. It didn't hurt at all skating…I think today was a good day.”
