Extra InformationRed Wings forward Dan Cleary, who has one goal in 13 games, is one goal away from the 100th of his NHL career. "Getting antsy? That's an understatement," Cleary said. "Can't get too frustrated."

Cleary said he has to shoot more when he gets chances. "For me it's just about skating, going to the net and hanging on to the puck," Cleary said. "I'm not concerned. I believe it'll come -- just gotta keep working hard."

Coach Mike Babcock said skating is the big thing for Cleary, who was sidelined in training camp with a groin injury. "He's a good player. It's just a matter of time, but his skating is the biggest thing. The pace of his game has got to continue to improve."

Cleary had back-to-back 20-goal seasons for the Wings in 2006-08 and scored 14 goals last season. "You gotta stay positive," Cleary said. "Once you get frustrated, things really go down. The team's playing well right now. Just gotta make sure that I do things, other than scoring."

Teams have become accustomed to using the Wings as a measuring stick in recent years, but Cleary talked that way about facing the Sharks (10-4-1) tonight at Joe Louis Arena.

"They're obviously playing very well and have some guys that are really hot right now," Cleary said. "It's going to be a good game for us. They key for us is going to be playing better defensively."

Patrick Marleau leads the Sharks with 11 goals and 21 points. Dany Heatley is two behind Marleau, and Devin Setochi has seven goals. The Wings are coming off a 2-0 win over the Bruins on Tuesday and have allowed one goal in their past seven periods. Cleary credited goaltender Chris Osgood for that.

"Ozzie's been really great. He's stopping a lot of pucks for us right now," Cleary said. "They could have scored a couple goals yesterday, but Ozzie made great saves."

Defensemen Brian Rafalski and Jonathan Ericsson returned to practice Wednesday at Joe Louis Arena and are expected to play against San Jose. The Wings sent defensemen Doug Janik back to Grand Rapids (AHL).

Ericsson missed the past two games with the flu, and Rafalski missed one game with flu-like symptoms. "Just had to sleep a lot," Rafalski said. "I didn't get too feverish or anything. Little bit of a sore throat and cough. It's coming around."
