About seven and a half hours until Game Seven between the Red Wings and the Ducks and there's not a lot of news coming out of either team's camp.

Bruce MacLeod notes that Kris Draper will be a game-time decision tonight, the first time in the playoffs that he hasn't been ruled out long before the start of the game. No word on who he would replace in the Detroit lineup should he be cleared to play.

Update, 12:05 PM: Helene St. James confirms what I'd already heard, that Justin Abdelkader has been told he'll play tonight so it doesn't appear Draper would replace him. This seems to point toward Draper replacing Kirk Maltby in the lineup, assuming Draper can even play.

Update, 2:05 PM: I've got an unconfirmed report that Draper is in fact in and Maltby is out.

Thought this was a great line from MacLeod:

The Ducks fight; in fact, they would probably try to change your mind about their preoccupation with fighting by fighting you.

Still not confirmed that Draper is in but I'm hearing he is. Supposedly it's Abdelkader - Draper - Samuelsson for the fourth line.

It would be nice to have Drapes back in the line up although I don't think we will know still its time for the pre-game warm-up. Game seven... I'm nervous

Here's what I'm looking for: The future captain to have a game like The Captain would have had last time the Wings were on the road to a repeat.

I've got an Yzerman jersey on to try to channel some of that.

Just in case I wasn't psyched enough, just took a second listening to the Bear McCreary version of All Along the Watchtower. Poundy drums. Sitar. Drama.

Shame it's been so long since Wings fans have been treated to a game seven. Whether or not it's a treat will be decided in 60+ minutes.

Not a Wings or Bruins fan by any means, but the prospect of having three of the original six in the final four is very intriguing!

Zata puts Perry into the turnbuckle. Maybe Perry should have kept his head up.
