from Ansar Khan of Mlive, If Conklin is claimed (the team would be responsible for only half the remaining portion of his salary, which is basically nothing at this point of the season), then Jordan Pearce will make his first NHL start.
“I feel like whether you’re a backup or a starter you got to be ready to go,’’ Pearce said. “I prepare the same as I have been all week.
“I’m excited either way. I’m just happy to be up here. I’ll get focused and play the game. We’re kind of desperate for a win right now.’‘
Also, captain Nicklas Lidstrom participated in his first full off-day practice since suffering a deep bone bruise in his ankle on Feb. 25. He has skated two days in a row.
“We’re hopeful he might be ready Saturday (against Carolina),’’ Babcock said. “I’m not certain. If not Saturday, then next week. Big E and Kuba (Jonathan Ericsson and Jakub Kindl) got to be coming eventually.’‘
