Homer and Maltby both to return Tuesday

Coach Mike Babcock said after Saturday's win in Dallas that both Tomas Holmstrom and Kirk Maltby will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game at home against Colorado. Holmstrom has missed the past seven games with a bone bruise in his knee. Maltby has missed the past 18 games with a back strain. Neither will play in Sunday night's game in Chicago.
Both Babcock and Holmstrom said that the Swede could play tomorrow, but will be held out as a precaution.
"He (Holmstrom) could go," said Babcock. "We're just a little cautious. Give him and Malts two more days to skate."
"I'm ready to go, but they pulled the chute on me again," said Holmstrom. "We'll go Tuesday now."
