Martin Havlat appears to be OK after the hellacious hit he took from Wings defenceman Nicklas Kronwall on Friday.

Havlat was on the ice for the pre-game warm-up and now expected to play in Sunday afternoon's Western Conference final game against Detroit.

The Hawks won't have goalie Nikolai Khabibulin - out with a suspected groin injury - which means Cristobal Huet will start.

The Wings don't have either Pavel Datsyuk, or Kris Draper, who are out with foot and groin injuries, respectively.

The news isn't so good for the Red Wings.

Perennial Norris Trophy defenceman Nicklas Lidstrom isn't playing due to a "lower body" injury. Lidstrom did practice on Saturday.

It appears Chris Chelios will take his place.
