Henrik Zetterberg didn't want to talk. Neither did Red Wings coach Mike Babcock.

After Wednesday's Game 1 -- won, 3-2, at Bridgestone Arena by the Nashville Predators -- Zetterberg checked Nashville defenseman Shea Weber, who responded by grabbing Zetterberg and slamming his head face-first into the boards twice. Zetterberg was slow to get up -- but he did -- and spent his postgame time in the team's training room, undergoing treatment. A team spokesman said, "He's not in the mood to talk."

Addressing the issue of any effect the hit might have had on Zetterberg, general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press: "I believe Z is OK."
