The status of forwards Johan Franzen of the Detroit Red Wings and Ryane Clowe of the San Jose Sharks both will be determined at game time tonight (9 p.m., FSD) as the teams prepare for Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals at HP Pavilion.

Both players skated this morning. The Sharks had an optional practice. Most Red Wings skated. Detroit coach Mike Babcock would not reveal any potential lineup changes, whether or not Franzen plays.

"I don't know for sure. I'll talk to the trainers afterward and decide at game time what we're doing,'' Babcock said.

Franzen struggled the first five games of the series on his injured left ankle. He didn't play in Game 6.
