Injured thigh keeps Datsyuk out of practice
DETROIT -- Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk sat out the team's practice Thursday at Joe Louis Arena, leaving his status for Game 3 of the Western Conference finals against the Chicago Blackhawks in doubt.

Datsyuk was struck in the thigh by a shot in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime victory in Game 2.

Jiri Hudler skated Thursday in Datsyuk's place between Tomas Holmstrom and Marian Hossa. The Wings' second line of Henrik Zetterberg, Johan Franzen and Dan Cleary remained intact, but a new-look third line featured Kris Draper and two players who haven't seen the ice in the series: Kirk Maltby and Ville Leino.
