Injuries abound for both the Red Wings and the Blackhawks heading into Sunday's Game Four in their Western Conference Final matchup.

Detroit will be without Kris Draper with a groin injury. Pavel Datsyuk, who missed Game Three with a foot injury, will be a game-time decision once again. Justin Abdelkader returns to the Wings' lineup to replace Draper, unless Datsyuk is able to go in which case Ville Leino will stay in the lineup while Abdelkader sits.

Chicago calls both Martin Havlat and Nikolai Khabibulin game-time decisions. Havlat left Game Three after being crushed by Niklas Kronwall, while Khabibulin was replaced for the third period by Christobal Huet after suffering an undisclosed lower-body injury.

'Hawks defenseman Brian Campbell has essentially called for Kronwall's head after the hit on Havlat, calling it gutless. Kronwall was not suspended for the play after being given a five-minute interference penalty and an ejection.

Chelios takes the ceremonial faceoff with Lidstrom out. He's got one of the extra As. Not sure who has the other, since Zetterberg is the only captain actually playing for the Wings tonight.

Nothing. And I want it that way. I want no hints for Chicago in Game Five.

So for the record, high hit by Kronwall is 5 minutes and a misconduct. High hit by Pahlsson is 2 minutes.

Considering the Wings are supposed to be a weak European team, it seems like it's the Blackhawks getting p*ssy about every little hit.

3 things so far:

1. First goal was amazing, especially since it was shorthanded.
2. Second goal was amazing (if the Wings win, I'd like Franzen to get the Conn Smythe)
3. Being the fangirl I am, I was terribly upset to see Filppula hit in the face, but it's good that he was ok! :rolleyes:
