Game 5 Wings vs Ducks Game Day Updates

Who's in, who's out, who's up, who's down, and who's playing with who.

Waaaaaa... He glared at me and hurt my feelings.
Waaaaaa... He glared at me and hurt my feelings.
The Dirt

All is quiet on the Western Front.

The biggest update is that there are no updates. No expected lineup changes. Samuelsson will start on the top line again, and Babcock said he'll see how things go from there. Morning skate was eerily quiet.

Lydman is still out with headaches, but they're not as severe as they were before. Still no word on when he'll be back

Datsyuk being Datsyuk

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Rarely get a straight answer from Datsyuk. I asked him what will be the key in tonight's game 5. He said, "get one more goal than the Ducks"</p>&mdash; Ken Kal (@KenKalDRW) <a href="">May 8, 2013</a></blockquote>
