Notes from Tuesday's practice
-- Niklas Kronwall (groin) took part in the drills at Tuesday's practice, but left the ice during the 5-on-5 scrimmages. He won't play Wednesday.
-- Jiri Hudler worked on with the first and second lines on drills. With Johan Franzen working in on the second power-play unit at practice again, there's a possibility that Hudler could be scratched.
-- Tomas Kopecky worked in with the fourth line. Dallas Drake, Matt Ellis and Aaron Downey started all drills as the fourth line for the third straight practice.
-- The team's father/mentor trip will be Jan. 18-24 on a trip that includes games in San Jose, Los Angeles and Anaheim.
