Draper probably out until playoffs

Kris Draper had tests on his strained groin that showed nothing seriously wrong. The forward, however, likely won't play in any of the Red Wings' final three regular-season games in the hope that he'll be better for the playoffs.
Draper missed five games with a groin strain in mid-March, then was back for four games before his latest injury.
"He had tenderness low in his groin," said coach Mike Babcock after Wednesday's morning skate. "We're just in a position where we can't take any risks at this point as much as we want to win every night. I'm not sure if he'll play prior to the playoffs just for the fact that he came back, he had nothing, he skated for eight days before he played … here we go again. That's just got to get sorted out."
