Red Wings' Draper to miss first two games vs. Columbus
Forward Dan Cleary left practice on Tuesday, but Babcock said he didn't have an update on him.
Draper, who has an upper-body injury, did not play in the last two games of the regular season.
If Cleary can't play, it would probably be more of a loss than missing Draper, whose plus-minus rating was a team-worse and career-low minus-13 this season.
The second-seeded Red Wings begin their defense of the Stanley Cup on Thursday night at home against the seventh-seeded Blue Jackets. Columbus is making its first playoff appearance in franchise history.
