With just under two minutes left in the first period on Thursday night, Detroit star forward and leading scorer Henrik Zetterberg needed help to leave the ice. After a hard, but legal, hit from Mattias Ohlund, Zetterberg was taken to the dressing room with what’s being called an “upper body injury” (of course). TSN is reporting that the initial prognosis isn’t good, however.

UPDATE: reports Friday are that Zetterberg will miss "at least two weeks" with a slightly separated left shoulder.

The Red Wings are also skating without injured forwards Johan Franzen, Valterri Filppula, Jason Williams and Dan Cleary. Defenseman Jonathan Ericsson was hurt on Monday night, joining Niklas Kronwall on the sidelines from Detroit’s defensive group.
