Morning Skate Update

by Staff Writer / Detroit Red Wings


Ken Holland says Kyle Quincey has a fractured cheekbone and will see a doctor Monday to determine if surgery is needed.

Ian White will replace Quincey in the lineup tonight.

The Wings will dress 13 forwards and 7 defensemen in warmups and then Babcock will decide lineup due to last night's injuries.

Jimmy Howard will again be in net for the Wings.


Some of the Wings staff weren't satisfied with their play last night, but were happy with the result, nonetheless.

"Last night) I thought we were no good, and then got playing in the third period. I don't think that's the recipe for success, to be honest with you, I think you've got to play all 60, but our guys really dug in and got competitive."
- Mike Babcock

"(Pav) is outstanding. Some of the moves he does out there, it's just fun to see, you're on the bench, laughing. In the end there, when he deked the guy and put it top shelf, it's world-class goal."
- Henrik Zetterberg



"Mule made a perfect play. He give me perfect pass, make it tougher for defenseman, because defenseman stand at blue line, and I make move and shoot right away."
- Pavel Datsyuk

"Not the start we wanted...But we came into the third and we just wanted to keep going, stay with it, and we did. I think our battle level came up and we got some goals. It was nice to see."
- Henrik Zetterberg
