Red Wings' Datsyuk to miss game Sunday
The Detroit Red Wings will be without center Pavel Datsyuk when they visit the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday due to a possible concussion.

The Detroit Red Wings will be without center Pavel Datsyuk when they visit the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday due to a possible concussion.

Datsyuk Tweeted the following message Sunday morning:

Datsyuk did not make the trip to Buffalo after being elbowed in the jaw by defenseman Jared Cowen with 7:48 remaining in the Ottawa Senators' 4-2 victory Saturday at Joe Louis Arena. No penalty was called on the play. Datsyuk was shaken up momentarily but got up and played three more shifts. His last shift, however, lasted only 12 seconds, and he did not play in the final 1:51.

"We left him behind," Detroit general manager Ken Holland told MLive.com. "After the game he felt, I don't know the word, but he wasn't quite right. We're going through the protocol, see how he feels in the next day or two."

Holland said the Red Wings will be patient with their center.

"We'll wait a day or two to see how he feels," Holland told the Macomb Daily. "He said he felt fuzzy. He wasn't normal. We've all seen these blows to the head, so you just don't know."

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.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
