Thursday's morning skate
"That was the one thing that mentally I didn't want," said Draper. "I didn't want to play a game and have to sit one out, then wait a couple of days to play. This is good. Get right back into it."
Aaron Downey will be a healthy scratch for the second straight night.
-- Chris Chelios skated this morning, but will get the night off just for rest purposes. Derek Meech will be in the lineup tonight.
Probable line combinations ...
Chelios (healthy scratch)
Downey (healthy scratch)
