Some news and notes from the Wings' twitter feed. Nyquist is called up from GR, and it seems that now Zetterberg is missing from practice. Hopefully Z only has the day off. Also, Jimmy and Nick skated prior to the practice.

I can't wait to see a healthy line up taking the ice. I just hope we are still in contention for the division by then.

Ok. Sounds like Z was simply given a day off from practice, per Dana Wakiji. Lidstrom, Bertuzzi, and Datsyuk still expected to be out. Interestingly enough, he didn't say if Howard was in or out...

#RedWings Babcock on Fri's game: No Nick. No Pav. No Bert. Z's in. No E obviously. No Kindl. Lots of names. It's Nyquist for Conner.

The way Mlive makes it sound, Pavel, Nick and Bert should be ready to go Tuesday in LA for the West Coast trip. Nice to hear only 2 more games to go hopefully we can win one of two at least. Go Wings!

I know, right? I'll be at the games in SA in 2 weeks, the only guy left will be Conks.

Just saw on Mlive that Nyquist will be playing with Abdelkader and Cleary on friday

Id prefer to see him in the top 6 (Franzen, Helm, Nyquist?) - but at least he should get decent ice time with this line. I hope he gets a fair shake to play his game. Pav and Z had to get their start somewhere - I think hes shown hes ready.

Good, more young talented legs to pull around Rosebud... I mean Cleary. Hopefully he'll see some powerplay time and plenty of ice. Nyquist can't be worse than Jiri 'Another SH Breakaway?!' Hudler on the PP.

The last two games the 2nd and 3rd lines are had similar ice time numbers. Further, it will probably be good for Nyquist to play with Abby in case the game gets rough.

Then we lucked out because we saw him last night here in Texas, playing the Austin Stars. he didn't score but he looked great. Great speed, hustle and commitment.

With how beat up the wings are that line will probably end up playing pretty good minutes. Babcock usually plays rookies a little less in their first games while they adapt. Good chance for Nyquist to show if hes good enough to play in the playoffs for this team or not.

He does man the point on the PP with the griffins quite a bit

Yeah you will. Conner's back down. Then there's Brunnstrom, Tatar, Ferraro, Pare, etc. It was great fun watching all of them. They came alive in the 3rd (sound familiar?) and scored four goals to tie it. Conklin was in net and did well until the OT. THAT one was on him.

Sadly, this kind of tsunami of injuries seems to be a yearly event for us.

I remember a few years ago when Matt updated the Lets Go Wings logo to include a band-air over the word Wings, and Griffins inserted in. At this rate, he'll have to break that out again.

Fortunately, it seems we're only a few games away from Lidstrom and Datsyuk returning, so with any luck this will be the last of the rash of injuries.

*update* Per Ansar Khan, it's Abdelkader that might be out tonight, with the flu. Andersson brought up just as a precaution.
