Lilja possibly in for Chelios

Coach Mike Babcock said that Chris Chelios' leg is bothering him and he's a game-time decision. Chelios did skate this morning with Derek Meech as his partner.

Andreas Lilja practiced with Brett Lebda this morning. Lilja said after the morning skate that he's probably going to be in the lineup tonight for Game 6.

I'm not certain why the pairings were switched at practice. If Chelios could skate this morning, why didn't he skate with Lebda and then make a decision at game time? Why change partners for practice if Chelios could possibly play tonight? It gives the appearance that Lilja is going to be in the lineup.
