DETROIT - Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock says Kris Draper is able to play but he might sit the gritty forward in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup final.

Babcock said Monday he's reluctant to change his lineup because his team is leading the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-0.

Pavel Datsyuk, who has been out with a foot injury, is not expected to play Tuesday night at Pittsburgh.

The defending champions beat the Penguins in the first two games of the series, taking a 2-0 lead against them for the second straight year in the Cup final.
