Wrapping Up The Wings’ Day

from Chuck Pleiness of Red Wings Front,

Wings coach Mike Babcock has pegged Jonas Gustavsson to start Game 5 in Boston, Saturday afternoon.

He expects Jimmy Howard, who didn’t practice, to be well enough to be the backup.

Henrik Zetterberg said he’ll play as well....

Daniel Alfredsson practiced and said he won’t know if he’ll play until after the pre-game skate in Boston, but he anticipate he’ll be ready.

Pavel Datsyuk was the only other regular that didn’t practice.

Besides picking Gustavsson to start, Babcock said he told the team he would post who’s playing in the locker room Saturday.

I’m glad Gustavsson is getting the start.  He’s earned it, and it shows that Babcock means it when he says the best players will play.  Now if he would just slip Jurco in there in place of Franzen…
