DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings will be without forward Valtteri Filppula when they face the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC, NHLN-CA).
Filppula is listed as day-to-day with a shoulder injury.
In goal for the Red Wings will be Jimmy Howard, while the Blackhawks will start Corey Crawford. It will be Crawford's first game since leaving a game against the St. Louis Blues on Feb. 28 after the first period due to an upper-body injury that appeared to make him wobbly leaving the ice.
The Blackhawks will be without second-line center Dave Bolland for a fifth straight game due to an upper-body injury, with Marcus Kruger likely manning the middle again on the second line.
Bolland skated Feb. 28 for the first time since getting injured Feb. 22 against the San Jose Sharks. As for defenseman Steve Montador, who hasn't played yet because of an upper-body injury believed to be concussion-related, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Sunday morning the veteran blueliner is "getting closer" to returning.
