Darren Helm will not play tonight.

Todd Bertuzzi is also out tonight with a sore back.


Mike Babcock said as of this morning, tonight's lineup will be the same as last game.

"Our best way to live is to live a little bit scared to death and just keep grinding and competing."

Brendan Smith went through drills after morning skate.

"I was shooting pretty good. No real slap shots or anything, but I was shooting pretty good."

Carlo Colaiacovo joined Smith in drills after morning skate.

"I'm feeling good. As frustrating as it is that I can't be back right now, I'm feeling good...It's obviously not moving as quickly as I would like, but I'm close"
Carlo Colaiacovo
