Lidstrom expected to play in Game 1
Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said on Thursday he's encouraged by how Lidstrom's lower-body injury has recovered after he was forced to miss two games.
Kris Draper (lower-body injury) is doubtful for Game 1, but Holland expects him to play later in the series.
