Kyle Quincey (ankle) might return to the Red Wings' lineup before their current trip is over.

Detroit has four more consecutive road games, which concludes with a contest in Arizona on Jan. 14. Quincey underwent ankle surgery and consequently hasn't played since Oct. 23. "He’s ready," captain Henrik Zetterberg said of Quincey. "He is doing everything he can to prepare himself to come back and play. I think his next step is just play games. When you’ve been out for that long it’s hard to get in game shape by just practicing. You have to come back and play games."
