Friday Practice Update
-- Brett Lebda practiced for the first time during this series. The defenseman won't dress for Saturday's Game 5, but because he had no setbacks, Lebda's one step closer to playing.
-- Kirk Maltby confirmed that he signed a three-year deal before end of regular season.
-- Bill Guerin did not practice with the Sharks and will not play Saturday.
-- Tomas Holmstrom said it was a skate blade problem that kept him out of the end of overtime in Game 4. But Holmstrom wouldn't expand on any answers and doubt still lingers as to why Chris Chelios said it was a physical problem that kept Homer unavailable in overtime.
-- Mike Babcock said that the lineup will remain the same unless there are injuries.
