Detroit Red Wings: Detroit center Kris Draper said he's ready to return from the partially torn rotator cuff he suffered March 3. But knowing the Red Wings' luck with injuries, head coach Dave Lewis will probably play it safe and delay Draper's return until Wednesday. "I listen to the doctors, not him," Lewis told The Detroit News.
Vancouver Canucks: Vancouver is back to .500 since Todd Bertuzzi was suspended (3-3-2-1), but the Canucks still have some problems to sort out. Namely their power play, which is 3-for-45 the past 12 games, has to improve before the playoffs start next week.
