Detroit will look to win their second straight game without forward Pavel Datsyuk for the second game in a row and seventh time this season. Detroit will get a boost on the back end, as defenseman Kyle Quincey is expected to return to the lineup. Q missed the past four games with an ankle injury, but should provide a spark to a blue line that's playing well, providing three goals for Detroit last game in a 4-2 win against New Jersey.
