Cleary back in lineup; Tatar out; Samuelsson remains in

DETROIT — After being a healthy scratch last game, Daniel Cleary will return to the Wings’ lineup against the Washington Capitals Friday, replacing Tomas Tatar.

“When I looked at our lineup (Tuesday) I thought that was a spot I felt we could have been better so he gets an opportunity to watch,” Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “He’ll get back in.”

Tatar has two goals and one assist in 11 games. He’s a plus-1.

Cleary has a goal and two assists in 18 games. He’s a plus-1.

“I thought (Mikael) Samuelsson was good, had lots of opportunities to score last game so I’m leaving him back in,” Babcock said.

Joakim Andersson will center Cleary and Samuelsson.

Samelson has just one goal in seven games. He’s a minus-1.
