DETROIT -- Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk sat out the team's practice Thursday at Joe Louis Arena, leaving his status for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Chicago Blackhawks in doubt.
Datsyuk was struck in the thigh by a shot in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime victory in Game 2.
Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
