ROMULUS — Wings coach Mike Babcock said he’ll go with the same lineup for Game 1 that has won four straight to finish off the regular season.
“They’re not getting in,” Babcock said of the injured guys that are healthy enough to return to the lineup. “The guys that got us here are getting in Game 1 and we’ll adjust after Game 1. I already told them that they’re not in, get themselves ready and be there to support the guys and help the team. But for Game 1 those guys that got us here are getting a chance to play.”
Forwards Todd Bertuzzi and Mikael Samuelsson have been cleared to return to action.
Defensemen Carlo Colaiacovo, Ian White and Brian Lashoff will continue to be healthy scratches.
Forward Darren Helm is also on the trip, but has yet to be cleared to return.
Forward Drew Miller (broken hand) is also the trip.
