DETROIT — Here’s what Henrik Zetterberg had to say have his first time on the ice since suffering a knee injury.
“I was out there for 15 minutes. It was fun to be out there, feel the puck again. I didn’t so any serious stuff, just go out and stick-handle a little bit and have some shots.
“It’s day by day. We’ll see how I react after today. We bumped it up a little bit in the workout room today. Just got to see how I respond.”
He was asked if it would be easier to rest him if the Wings keep winning, “Absolutely. It’s a lot easier to be on the side when the team’s winning.”
