Red Wings' Alfredsson scratched due to groin injury

UNIONDALE. N.Y. – Forward Daniel Alfredsson was a late scratch by the Detroit Red Wings for their game against the New York Islanders on Saturday night.

Alfredsson had to be scratched after injuring his groin in warmups before the Red Wings' 4-3 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals on Friday night. He made the trip to New York, but said after the morning skate that he might not be able to play.

The Red Wings played one skater short on Friday. They recalled center Luke Glendening from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League for the game against the Islanders.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
