Monday practice update

-- Coach Mike Babcock said that Kyle Calder won't play in Tuesday's Game 3 against Anaheim ... but it won't be Jiri Hudler who replaces him. Tomas Kopecky, who has been out since Dec. 14 with a broken collar bone, will dress instead of Calder. Kopecky practiced with Kris Draper and Kirk Maltby, Monday.
"We're putting Kopy in because we think he can skate, we think he can take the body, we think he can generate the forecheck for us," said Babcock.

-- Anaheim top-line forard Chris Kunitz will miss the remainder of the Western Conference final. He'll have surgery on his hand. Kunitz missed Game 2 with the injury.
-- Dominik Hasek has played 28 consecutive post-season games without allowing more than three goals in regulation time. The last time that he allowed four goals in regulation was in Game 3 of the second round of the 2002 post-season when St. Louis beat Detroit, 6-1.
