NHL Playoffs 2012: Dan Cleary Expected Back For Game One, Darren Helm For Game Two

The Detroit Red Wings know that they're going to play the Nashville Predators in the first round of the NHL Playoffs, now they just need to get healthy. The last couple months of the season was exceptionally rough for them, with injuries to Joey MacDonald and Darren Helm among others - not to mention Jimmy Howard's broken finger and subsequent groin injuries.

Well, they are getting healthier as the Stanley Cup Playoffs approach. The official Twitter account mentioned both Dan Cleary and Darren Helm in an injury update:

Cleary was held out of the team's game against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday, but it appears that it was more of a "maintenance" day for the 33-year-old right winger. He's been injured off and on throughout the season, with lingering rib and knee injuries. Helm is dealing with a sprained knee, and was skating as early as Thursday.
