Bertuzzi replacing Jurco will help reduce rookie panic which was a problem last game.

Plus, Bertuzzi can hang on to the puck. Yes, we need speed but we also need someone who can control a play and not move too fast for It.

I think his stickhandling and strength could help the the third line.

I hope.

Not true (with updates):

 

Ansar Khan ‏@AnsarKhanMLive 20m

Wings said Zetterberg on way to see doctor. Will be game-time decision.

 

Helene St. James ‏@HeleneStJames 13m

Perception within Red Wings locker room is that Henrik Zetterberg is playing tonight. Not official.

 

 

I'll change it, but I'm inferring he'll play.

For sure. It looks like he'll play. I agree. Just not confirmed 100% official.

Zetterberg and Bertuzzi should help a bit. Anyway this game is as close as a must win as it gets.

I'd to think Hank is smart enough not to risk his long term health to come back and that Babs will use him accordingly. He obviously will provide an emotional boost, and hopefully Bert rattles the crap out of Marchand/Lucic.

Where did I say andersson is good? The guy is a plug as well

 

Jurco is what we need as we struggle to score goals, not a slow,defensively liable, useless turnover machine prone to taking penalties against the best PP in the league..... the guy brings down whatever line he plays on

 

I'm sorry, didn't know we weren't outscored 7-1 in the last 2 games. Your absolutely right, let's leave Jurco in there because he's so effective right now...

May concern is that he will be a big slow turnover machine that won't scare anything tonight

He's been saving the other hand for the playoffs.

Whoa I just heard about Jurco being a healthy scratch.... BUT Bertuzzi in is a ballsy move by Babcock, it's a Hail Mary to say the least. Despite what a lot of YOU think Bert still does have the potential to be a difference maker, especially in this matchup....the brutal reality is though you HAVE to play him with your top players or he won't be nearly as effective & he cannot take stupid penalty after stupid penalty. I support this move by Babs and LETS GO WINGS!! (Also if Z doesn't go come game time is Jurco back in?)

Hope to see Swedish Jesus back in tonight. He deserves to be playing in another playoff series of this caliber since he's basically carried us the last like 7 years. No matter what, Z, you da man. Well this is a must win. Let's hope for big changes and the strongest effort of the year from our boys. Not easy but not impossible. Hope for the best here. GO WINGS!

I wanna see these lines:

Zetterberg-Dats-Abdelkader

Zett's beard-Legwand-Nyquist

Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco/Bertuzzi

Helm-Miller-Glendening

Zetterbeard rules, it'd be a huge morale boost if he makes it back tonight. Maybe Pavels new baby can take Franzens spot, that kids scored just as many goals as Mule so far in the playoffs.

He's been a turnover machine lately. Bertuzzi I mean. Hope you're right though.

If Zetts is a no go then obviously replace him with Baby Datsyuk but keep Zetterberg's beard on either line.
