Detroit will head to Boston after going 1-1 on their most recent homestand. In hopes to get things going offensively, forward Teemu Pulkkinen is expected to play after being called up from Grand Rapids. Also, Mike Babcock will place Luke Glendening on the top line with Pavel Datsyuk and Tomas Tatar. "We're a team that needs to bounce back," Babcock said, "I felt our energy at practice was the best we've had in a bit. We haven't had good energy the last little bit, so I'm hoping the energy is back." Backup goalie, Jonas Gustvsson is expected to start in goal.
