Nicklas Lidstrom and Pavel Datsyuk will be game-time decisions for Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals, according to the Associated Press.

Lidstrom and Datsyuk were both held out of practice Tuesday and Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock said they're feeling better, but he wants them to skate before Wednesday's game before a decision is made.

Lidstrom is out with an undisclosed injury and Datsyuk has been bothered by a injured foot. Lidstrom missed Game 4, while Datsyuk missed Games 3 and 4.

Detroit currently leads the series 3-1 over the Chicago Blackhawks.
