Red Wings Monday practice

Thanks to all who caught the Hartigan/Helm mistake. It has been corrected below. Darren Helm centered the fourth line at practice today. Mark Hartigan did not.

The Wings have just taken the ice after two days off. The only thing of note is that Valtteri Filppula is not on the ice. Not sure why at this point. I'll update after practice.
Instead of just subbing in someone on the second line, however, coach Mike Babcock has juggled his lines as though Filppula wasn't going to play. Here's the line combinations being used right now ...

Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Holmstrom
Cleary-Franzen-Samuelsson
Drake-Draper-Maltby
Hudler-Helm-McCarty
Hartigan
Downey

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart
Lebda-Chelios
Meech-Lilja

Osgood
Hasek
Howard

Babcock moved Cleary up from the second line to the third line and inserted Maltby onto the third line. If Filppula is healthy, obviously he'll bein the lineup for Thursday's Game 1.

Is Hartigan a typo or is Helm not playing?

Bruce, was Helm at practice? He's been playing well... certainly better than Hartigan.
