Detroit Gunner Update

Sounds like Helm is a maybe for tomorrow. So that’s good news.

My guess is Gustav Nyquist would be the odd man out unless it’s Abdelkader that gets bumped down to fourth. That’d give the fourth line a center and would allow for Cory Emmerton to be taken out of the lineup. If the aim is to ice the best available group, that’d be my route (along with shelving Dan “50%” Cleary).

For your reference, as they skated today:

Filppula-Zetterberg-Hudler
Franzen-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi
Miller-Abdelkader-Cleary
Nyquist-Emmerton-Holmstrom

Anyway, no more football references.

Nyquist Bump Alert

Update (1:42 PM): Turns out it’s not set in stone, as expected.

He’s right about the Zetterberg line. Of course, had Goose been with Pavel and Franzen more than three shifts, maybe they’d’ve generated some offense, too. - Matt

He didn’t finish the game there, but he did get some time with Datsyuk and Franzen last night. Babcock must have liked what he saw.

It’s not for sure the way he’ll go tomorrow, but if it is, it’s about time. We fans were calling for this as soon as the news broke that Franzen would return Wednesday.

Good and Bad News

First the good: Todd Bertuzzi’s back tonight.

The bad: Nick Lidstrom had a setback. Sounds like he’ll take some time off from skating, which sucks that it’s needed, but it probably is.

More bad: Bertuzzi returning likely means Gustav Nyquist is headed back to the AHL, as his equipment was being packed up earlier.
