PLAYER NOTES

--C Henrik Zetterberg has struggled all season but seems to be heating up. He has nine points (three goals, six assists) in his past six games, after picking up only one point (an assist) in his previous six games. He has been stronger on the puck, and he is shooting more than he did earlier this season.

--G Joey MacDonald has been solid in net while winning four games in a row. He has been big and square to the puck and soft, not allowing many rebounds. He has allowed only seven goals in the past four games. His confidence is soaring, and the club's confidence in him is soaring.

--RW Jiri Hudler sealed Tuesday's win by hopping off the bench on a change and scoring his 18th goal with 4:49 to play in the third period. Hudler continues his tremendous bounce-back season. He has 18 goals, eight more than he scored all of last season. He's doing it by being more assertive, going to the net and the hard areas of the ice.

MEDICAL WATCH

--RW Dan Cleary is out until mid-February with a sore knee.

--G Jimmy Howard is out until mid-February with a broken finger.

--RW Patrick Eaves (fractured jaw on Nov. 26) is out indefinitely.
