Tuesday morning skate
-- Dallas Drake and Dan Cleary will be back in the lineup tonight. The probable lines are listed below.
-- Darren McCarty (broken ribs) skated through the full practice and is still on course for a possible return Friday.
-- After not practicing yesterday, Valtteri Filppula (groin) made it through the entire morning skate. Coach Mike Babcock said that there's a good possibility the Filppula will be back Friday. Filppula said that it's the type of injury that you have to see the effects that practicing had a day later to fully judge. Filppula is hopeful for Friday, but wasn't as optimistic as Babcock.
-- Tomas Holmstrom did not skate, but is with the team. His abdomen will get more tests tomorrow in Detroit, either an MRI or ultrasound. His return isn't going to come in the next few days.
-- Brad Stuart (broken finger) will rejoin the team tomorrow and start skating.
