Cleary will play in Game 1
That will likely mean that Cleary will be on the second line with Henrik Zetterberg in the middle and Johan Franzen on the other wing. That will bump Mikael Samuelsson back to the third line with Valtteri Filppula and Jiri Hudler.
The first line will be Pavel Datsyuk, Tomas Holmstrom and Marian Hossa. The fourth line will be Darren Helm, Tomas Kopecky and Kirk Maltby.
Cleary didn't skate today. He suffered an injury during Tuesday's practice, likely when Niklas Kronwall checked him into the boards. Cleary said that he went for tests, yesterday.
"It showed there's something there, but it's not a big concern," said Cleary. "It's more precautionary than anything."
"I should be ready to go, shouldn't be a problem," said Cleary.
Everything this time of year is a piece of the puzzle. How badly is Cleary hurt? Don't know. But that he went for tests is a piece. That he can't skate right now is a piece. That they're sure he'll be in the lineup is another piece.
