Morning Skate Update

by Staff Writer / Detroit Red Wings


Jimmy Howard is starting tonight and he's looking to bounce back
from Wednesday's 3-2 loss in Calgary.

“It's not the first time I've made a mistake out there, it most definitely won't be the last. This game is full of making mistakes, it's how you bounce back.”
-Jimmy Howard told Ansar Khan

“After the other night in Calgary someone told me that Howard said, 'That's on me'...that's not on him, but that's what leadership is.”
- Mike Babcock told Ansar Khan

Jordin Tootoo will return to the lineup after being a healthy scratch Wednesday.



Patrick Eaves will be a healthy scratch.

Tonight's healthy scratches on D will be Ian White, Carlo Colaiacovo and Brian Lashoff.



Mikael Samuelsson skated after practice, which means he's out tonight.

Todd Bertuzzi skated with Zetterberg's line; he's hoping to return Monday, but doesn't know when he will be back.
