Jonas Gustavsson did not travel with the team to Columbus.

Kent Huskins went through a series of tests that came back negative, but he feels ready to play tonight.


"I'm all right. Good to play, that's all that matters..It was more just a jolt, kind of knocked the wind out of me... I was a little dazed for a bit, no big issues."
- Kent Huskins

"We'll have seven D ready, I'll make a decision on what the six are at warmup."
- Mike Babcock

After Henrik Zetterberg's incredible performance last night, The Great One had some very high praise for the new Captain...

"I think Zetterberg is the best player in the game (at his age)...I think he’s the best Swedish player they’ve ever put into the National Hockey League"
- Wayne Gretzky

“We get to watch Henrik every day. I know that Lidstrom is special and Datsyuk is special, but when you see these players every day I think sometimes people don’t always appreciate how special they are."
- Ken Holland



"I didn’t believe (Gretzky's comments) at first...I had to go to Goggle to make sure no one was pulling a prank on me. But it is nice. He’s one of my first big’s a great honor."
- Henrik Zetterberg
