Slap shots: Here come the Wings

babcock.jpgHere are some quick updates from Hawks' practice on Saturday ... looking ahead to Sunday's game vs. the Detroit Red Wings:

Who will start in goal vs. the Red Wings?

Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said Cristobal Huet will get his third consecutive start Sunday against the Red Wings. Quenneville said earlier this week that he was going to give Huet a chance to "take control" of the net, and he has held true to his word. Huet had a solid game against the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.

Who is in? Who is out?

Adam Burish will not return to the lineup Sunday from his torn anterior crucial ligament. He had been targeting the Red Wings game. Quenneville said he expects to use the same lineup from Sunday's win over the Canucks, which included Brent Sopel and Colin Fraser as scratches.

What about those Red Wings?

"They've gone the majority of the season without the lineup they have today," Quenneville said. "I'm sure they're excited about their full lineup playing us tomorrow. It's a different team. They were very short when we saw them around the Christmas time period."

And another Olympic note ...

Sunday's game will be the first time Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook meet their Olympic coach Mike Babcock, Detroit's head coach, since winning a gold medal for Canada.
