Friday's practice

The Red Wings are on the ice now without Henrik Zetterberg or Brad Stuart. Zetterberg has a groin strain that caused him to miss Thursday's game against Vancouver. Stuart was felled by a Sami Samlo shot (struck him on the inside of the knee) and left the arena last night on crutches.

There are 18 healthy skaters on the ice right now plus Darren McCarty, who's on injured reserve with a groin strain.

Here's the line combinations they're working out of ...

So for now, Derek Meech is being inserted into Stuart's spot alongside Niklas Kronwall, rather than breaking apart the third tandem of Andreas Lilja and Brett Lebda.

The forward lines are the same as the ones that started Thursday's game.

I say give Stuart a game or two to rest his knee, make sure he's 100%, and let Meech get in there and show his stuff. And I like that they have Meech paired with Kronwall.
