Clowe, Franzen may crack Game 7 lineup

San Jose Sharks forward Ryane Clowe took part of the team’s very optional skate earlier today, although he was not made available to reporters.


Clowe, the Sharks’ top scorer this postseason, missed Game 6 with what is described as an upper-body injury. He skated for about 20 minutes as the rest of the Sharks’ regulars took the morning off in preparation for tonight’s Game 7 against the Detroit Red Wings .


Sharks coach Todd McLellan said after the skate that Clowe remains a game-time decision.


“He's feeling pretty good,” McLelland told reporters (via CSN Bay Area’s Brodie Brazil).


Meanwhile, Red Wings could have their gritty forward back in the lineup as well. Johan Franzen reportedly maneuvered well in the Wings’ pre-game skate. An ankle injury suffered in the first round forced Franzen out of the lineup for Game 6.


Detroit coach Mike Babcock said Franzen will be a game-time decision as well. Brian Rafalski and Pavel Datsyuk weren’t in the ice for the skate, but both will be in the lineup.

Game time rapidly approaching. T minus 4 hours!!! If Franzen is deemed well enough to play, please put him in Hudler's spot. If Clowe plays, test him immediately.

Well, there both game time decision's... this has been going on for ever in the NHL...nobody is going to show there hand. Coach has to make a really gutty call before the game. Someone sitting and someone who isnt ready and gets the green light could play a very important part in game 7 tonight.

If the 2 weeks he had to heal didn't help him neither will 4 days. We cant risk being a man down he's got to sit!

I don't want to see a 30% Franzen in the line-up tonight.  The Wings can handle this group of cheap-shot artists without him.

Please keep Franzen out tonight.  He will be more important to us if we advance to the next round.  He will just be a target for cheap shots like the one Thorton gave him in game 5.  Save him for the next round please.

As much as I'd love not having to worry about Clowe tonight, this series really deserves a game 7 where all hands are on deck.  So here's hoping that both play.
