Quincey back in lineup; Nyquist moving to second line

DETROIT – Quick update from Wings practice.

Defenseman Kyle Quincey will be back in the lineup Sunday after being a healthy scratch Friday. It looks like Ian White may rest, but Wings coach Mike Babcock said he will decide which defenseman will sit tomorrow.

Also, Gustav Nyquist was moved up to the second line to skate with Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen, while Todd Bertuzzi dropped to the third line with Justin Abdelkader and Danny Cleary.

Babcock said he wasn’t happy with either his second or third lines in Friday’s 4-1 loss to Nashville. He also said he won’t decide on his line combinations until Sunday.
