Ozzie starts again Wednesday

Coach Mike Babcock said after today's practice at Joe Louis Arena that Chris Osgood will start in net, Wednesday, against the St. Louis Blues. Dominik Hasek will get the nod for Thursday's game in Nashville.
"He (Osgood) is playing good ... simple," said Babcock. "To me, he's earned the right. Dom has another practice with Jimmy (goalie coach Jim Bedard) to get his game to where he wants and he'll be going the next night in Nash(ville)."
This is the second consecutive start for Osgood.
Other notes from practice ...
-- Matt Ellis and Aaron Downey were the odd forwards out. Downey worked in with the fourth line of Jiri Hudler, Tomas Kopecky and Dallas Drake. Ellis worked in with the second line of Johan Franzen, Valtteri Filppula and Mikael Samuelsson.
-- The Wings spent one segment of practice on 5-on-3 defense.
-- Samuelsson tweaked something in his leg, going down to the ice for a few seconds, but didn't miss a drill.
