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

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
