Tuesday's practice

The Red Wings are practicing late today, getting on the ice at 3:30 p.m. There are plenty of defensemen again (nine).
The biggest news is that Nicklas Lidstrom practicing for the first time since suffering a strained MCL in Denver. Chris Chelios is practicing as well as is Brian Rafalski who had planned on returning to the lineup tomorrow.
In case Rafalski isn't ready, Jonathan Ericsson is still with the team.
Also, Dan Cleary (broken jaw) is practicing again with football-mask style protection in front of his jaw. Cleary started practicing with the team last Saturday.

MID-PRACTICE UPDATE: Lidstrom took part in the first few non-contact drills and has now left the ice. Ditto for Chelios. Neither was expected to take part in the full practice today, so just participating in the early portion is a good sign of improvement.
