“Fil’s playing. Helm and Bert are in. Kindl’s in. No Ericsson. Emmerton’s playing. Eaves is out (healthy scratch).”
– Mike Babcock

“It’s definitely good to be healthy. I’m ready to get out there.”
– Darren Helm


“We had a great day to freshen up. There is no reason we don’t play well and real hard here tonight.”
Mike Babcock

“I’m hoping I can play the style of game that I’ve always brought, with speed and energy and trying to be physical…Hopefully I can give the guys a little bit of a lift.”
– Darren Helm

“I felt good out there. No problems whatsoever. Yeah, I felt good.”
– Patrick Eaves on his first games back from concussion

“(I felt) better than yesterday. It’s better. It’s not great, but another day tomorrow…hopefully Sunday (I’ll play). I’m really hoping for that.”
– Jonathan Ericsson

“I feel all right, it's kind of depressing that something like this happens so early in the season when you start getting your legs under you…but other than that, I'm in good spirits.”
– Ian White on his knee laceration

"It could have been a lot worse. You have a tendon going right over your knee cap. It just missed it…what I feel, getting up and walking around, I would think I can skate in a week.”
– Ian White
