Tuesday practice notes

-- Igor Grigorenko had his first regular-season practice with Red Wings. Grigorenko worked in with the fourth line during drills. But the majority of time was spent on full-ice power-play scrimmages and Grigorenko didn't get on the ice.
"He's probably in better shape than he was," said coach Mike Babcock. "We'll see. We'll keep watching him. ... The best 20 guys get to play (in the games). We're in a winning business. If he's one of them, great. If not, no problem."
-- The Wings practiced with the same lines they used in their most recent game with Jiri Hudler on Valtteri Filppula's second line and Tomas Kopecky on Matt Ellis' fourth line. Johan Franzen worked in with the first line and Derek Meech worked in with the defensemen.
-- Dominik Hasek will play goal Wednesday against Vancouver.
-- The San Jose Sharks will be coming into Friday's game at Joe Louis Arena fresh off a three-day team trip to Banff, Alberta. The Sharks' most recent game was Monday in nearby Calgary.

I'm not a big fan of the green.
