“I’m good to go, so if (the coach) puts me back in there, I’ll be fine,” DeKeyser said.
Helm felt good after skating Tuesday.
“I’ll skate (Wednesday), I’ll push it a little harder, take the pregame skate (Thursday) and take it from there,” Helm said.
He was disappointed to miss the Winter Classic.
“I was planning on (playing) but after the practice (the day before) I kind of felt something,” Helm said. “It didn’t feel bad, it was just a little something, so I got off the ice quick. I thought I was going to be fine and the next morning I woke up it wasn’t good enough to play.
“I wanted to make sure I was smart about it. It was a tough one to take (missing the outdoor game). It was probably one of the harder (decisions), but it was probably a smart one.”
Pavel Datsyuk (lower-body injury) also practiced Tuesday, but his status is more questionable, he said.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
