Post practice update
-- Nicklas Lidstrom (knee) might be ready to play Sunday. He felt fine at practice and was told not to take part in battle drills by the training staff.
-- Chris Chelios (bone chip in leg) is in the same situation. He felt good and was told not to participate in battle drills today. Chelios says that he's day-to-day. He felt a setback after one practice last week, but was fine today.
-- Brian Rafalski (groin) will play tomorrow unless he has a setback at the morning skate.
-- Jonathan Ericsson will stay with the team for now. Coach Mike Babcock said that even if Rafalski is back in the lineup, Ericsson will play tomorrow. But Babcock wouldn't say which defenseman would sit out. General manager Ken Holland said that Ericsson will stay with the team until he's not in the lineup, probably when Lidstrom returns.
-- Dominik Hasek will get his third consecutive start tomorrow. Hasek said that the coaches told him that he'd start on average two of three games down the stretch.
