The Red Wings have recalled Gustav Nyquist from Grand Rapids.

"(Nyquist) has got some skill. He's obviously a real good the NHL, you have to come up and grab hold of something.”
- Mike Babcock

Patrick Eaves will not play tonight due to a sprained jaw.

Nyquist is expected to take Eaves's spot on a line with Andersson and Cleary.



Jonathan Ericsson did not practice this morning for personal reasons, but is expected to play tonight.

Carlo Colaiacovo flew to Toronto to get another opinion on his shoulder, and left feeling encouraged.



"He saw some thing that were of some concern. I've dealt with them, I've treated them. I've been getting myself to the point where I'm close to 100 percent."
- Carlo Colaiacovo
