Cleary’s Groin is Concussed

…that’s what STLtoday.com is reporting anyway:

INJURIES — Blues —Roman Polak (upper body), out. Red Wings — RW Patrick Eaves (upper body), day-to-day; RW Dan Cleary (concussion), probable; RW Kirk Maltby (shoulder surgery), out for season.

See, now I thought that Cleary had a tender groin, and that’s why he hasn’t been playing.  But if must be that he suffered a groin concussion, which just sounds painful.

Regardless, Cleary will probably be playing tonight but Patrick Eaves will not be.

So what do we do about Bertuzzi?  The Bertuzzi-Zetterberg-Filppula line was by far the best against the Penguins on Monday.  So, will Mike Babcock stick with his “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” routine?

We’ll wait for the official word from Khan(!), but here’s how I could see this working out tonight…

Franzen-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Bertuzzi-Zetterberg-Filppula
Miller-Cleary-Williams
Draper-Helm-Meech

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart (Questionable)
Lilja-Ericsson

Howard (starting)
Osgood

If Ozzie doesn’t start tonight, he just may day after tomorrow, which by the way is Herm to Hockeytown.
