Marc Savard and Milan Lucic, kept out of practice today because of upper-body injuries, are questionable for tomorrow.

Blake Wheeler took a Chris Pronger shot off the foot in the first period and didn't practice today, but Claude Julien said the rookie should be available tomorrow. Julien said there could be promotions from Providence today if neither Savard nor Lucic can go tomorrow.

* Zdeno Chara has not decided how much he will donate to Right To Play tomorrow. Chara will make a donation based on ice time -- Andrew Ference said he will contribute $100 per minute -- and based on his expected matchup against Alex Ovechkin, the captain should be getting plenty of action.

* Expect Tim Thomas to start tomorrow.
