–Goaltender Chris Osgood had what the club believes is a minor setback in his comeback attempt from hernia surgery. Osgood, activated from injured reserve on Monday, didn’t feel good after Wednesday’s morning skate, so the team recalled Joey MacDonald from Grand Rapids (AHL) to back up Jimmy Howard. Osgood, who had surgery on Jan. 11, will continue to be monitored on a daily basis.

–The value of a good puck-moving defenseman to the Wings’ attack was evident Wednesday. Brian Rafalski returned after missing nine games with a sore back and had an immediate impact, assisting on all three of his team’s goals. Rafalski missed 10 games near the start of the season with a knee injury. He has 40 points (including 37 assists) in 51 games.

QUOTE TO NOTE
“It’s always fun to play against great players, especially from the Eastern Conference, you don’t see them that often. When you get the opportunity, you want to have a good game. He’s a very skilled player and it was tough to defend against him. No matter how you do it, it seems he always gets a shot away.” — Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg, on playing against Alex Ovechkin.
