Red Wings' Zetterberg out Tuesday vs. Flyers
Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg will not travel with the team for its game Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers due to a back injury.

Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg will not travel with the team for its game Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers due to a back injury.

Zetterberg sat out the Red Wings' game Sunday against the Florida Panthers with a back issue and is considered day-to-day. However, Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told the Detroit Free Press that Zetterberg would not be with the team when it traveled to Philadelphia.

Giving Zetterberg off Sunday and Tuesday would give the 33-year-old forward seven days out of game action if he is able to play in the Red Wings' following game, Friday against the Washington Capitals.

Holland also told the newspaper Pavel Datsyuk also will not travel with the team. Datsyuk last played Jan. 1 due to a lower-body injury. He's considered close to being able to return but apparently won't be ready for Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
