Red Wings' Saturday morning skate

POST-PRACTICE UPDATE: Coach Mike Babcock said after practice that "at this time of year, nobody's totally healthy. We plan on going with what we had in Game 1." In other words, some players may be banged up, but they'll all be in the lineup tonight ... probably.

The Wings are on the ice right now, but Tomas Holmstrom and Johan Franzen are not. They're the only two lineup regulars who are not on the ice. I'll update after practice.
With the two Swedes not on the ice, Dan Cleary skated on a line with Valtteri Filppula and Mikael Samuelsson. Kirk Maltby was up on the third line with Kris Draper and Dallas Drake and Darren McCarty worked on the fourth line with Jiri Hudler and Darren Helm. Mark Hartigan worked with the top line (Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg), which is a good sign that Holmstrom and/or Franzen will be in the lineup tonight.
