So, the defense pairings tonight will be ...
On the power play, the Wings will use more of a three-man rotation on the blue line with Lidstrom, Kronwall and Samuelsson. Stuart and Ericsson will also be used to a limited extent.
Derek Meech will be a healthy scratch.
The forward lines will be ...
Andreas Lilja skated for a second straight day today. He cannot take part in contact drills and still needs for his headaches to go away before he's cleared to play. Lilja is practicing to work on conditioning.
Dan Cleary didn't skate this morning and obviously is feeling some lingering injury from the practice hit he took before Game 1 of Round 1. But Cleary will be in the lineup tonight and likely will be until Kris Draper is ready to play. Draper skated again today, but won't play during the first two games of this series.
