The San Jose Mercury News has some interesting news about the Wings’ lineup for Thursday’s matchup: Chris Osgood will be the starting goaltender.
It was assumed that Hasek would get the start and that Osgood might play in Phoenix. IIRC, Osgood got shelled in an early-season game in San Jose last season (or was that the year before?).
Also noted is that neither Nicklas Lidstrom nor Henrik Zetterberg practiced on Wednesday. They’ll be game-time decisions on Thursday.
