Report: Samuelsson out two weeks with broken finger

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland announced Wednesday that veteran forward Mikael Samuelsson has a non-displaced fractured finger and will miss a minimum of two weeks, according to a report by Detroit Free Press beat writer Helene St. James.

Samuelsson had missed 12 games this season with a groin injury, returned to the lineup Sunday against the Minnesota Wild, but took an Ian White shot off his left hand during the morning skate prior to Tuesday's game against the Nashville Predators.

St. James reported the Red Wings are awaiting test results on Jimmy Howard, who left the 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators in the first period with blurry vision. Howard gave up two goals on seven shots before he was lifted and replaced by Jonas Gustavsson.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
