From the Red Wings:
According to Mike Babcock, Pavel Datsyuk will play tonight. Johan Franzen will not.— Detroit Red Wings (@DetroitRedWings) March 17, 2012
And the natural follow-up question answered by Fox Sports Detroit's Trevor Thompson (@iamtrevort)
Datsyuk, Bertuzzi and Cleary working on 1st line at #RedWings morning skate. Zetterberg, Filppula and Hudler skating on 2nd line.— Trevor Thompson (@iamtrevort) March 17, 2012
The assumption is still that the power play lines will include Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Holmstrom playing together. I would imagine that Cleary, Bertuzzi, and Filppula will be the 2nd-unit forwards with Hudler playing one of the points (the one where all the odd-man rushes come from, most likely).
Detroit looks to end their three-game losing streak tonight as they take on the San Jose Sharks at the HP Pavilion. These teams last met on February 19th in Detroit when the Red Wings won 3-2 to earn their 23rd consecutive win at home, setting the NHL All-time record.
