Detroit Red Wings C Filppula leaves in 1st period of Game 7 against Blackhawks with injury

CHICAGO - Detroit centre Valtteri Filppula has been knocked out of Game 7 of the Red Wings' second-round series against Chicago because of an undisclosed lower body injury.

Filppula played just two shifts in the first period Wednesday night before leaving. The Red Wings say he won't return to the game.

Filppula has two goals and four assists in the Red Wings' post-season games this year.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
