Friday morning skate notes

-- Either Mark Hartigan or Aaron Downey will be the scratch up front tonight. Coach Mike Babcock said that he'll wait until after the pregame skate to decide.
-- Sunday's starter in net hasn't been decided either. Babcock said that who starts from here on out is "up to Dom" meaning how Dominik Hasek plays will dictate the goalie schedule. Hasek is making his first start since returning from a hip flexor injury. Hasek said that the hip flexor impedes his ability to go up and down.
-- Brad Stuart and Niklas Kronwall will match up against the Joe Thornton line as will center Henrik Zetterberg.
-- Derek Meech will be on the ice as much as possible when Pavel Datsyuk's line is out to make sure that the puck moved forward quickly.
-- Defenseman Brian Rafalski (groin) took part in the entire morning skate but will not play tonight.
