The Detroit Red Wings will be a bit thin up the middle tonight when they face-off against the Ottawa Senators in a crucial matchup in the Atlantic Division.

Centers Pavel Datsyuk and Riley Sheahan will miss the game.

It’s the sixth time in the past eight games that Datsyuk, nursing a lower-body injury, has not dressed for the Wings, who are trying to hold off the Senators and Boston Bruins for third place in the division standings.

Sheahan will miss his third straight game with an upper-body injury that he sustained against San Jose last Thursday.

"Just an awkward hit and it didn't feel too good," said Sheahan, who has 12 goals and 34 points in 73 games this season.

Every Tuesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey insider Pete Jensen will provide you with in-depth forward analysis. From updated weekly top 100 rankings to trending players and more, Jensen will be your go-to guy for fantasy forward advice all season long.

Whether early or late in the season, the right line combinations usually lead to results in fantasy hockey.

Even in the month following the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline, Jaromir Jagr (with Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau) of the Florida Panthers and Drew Stafford (with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler) of the Winnipeg Jets have emerged as difference-makers. Productivity sometimes supersedes longevity.

Over the years, Mark Howe has lost track of how many fishing trips he's taken with his dad.

Excursions along the Jersey Shore, in northern Michigan and charter adventures throughout the Western Hemisphere have resulted in numerous trophy catches.

But that was before Gordie Howe suffered a major stroke last October, leaving him unable to walk let alone cast a line.

Since then, Mr. Hockey underwent controversial stem-cell treatments in Mexico setting him on a miraculous road to recovery. Gordie is doing so much better now that last week Mark and his brother, Murray, took their dad fishing for catfish on a Texas ranch.

Five Questions: Capitals' Green on current role, future

Tuesday, 03.31.2015 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green:

NEW YORK -- Mike Green has always had the skill to help the Washington Capitals win in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Now he feels he again has the tool to do so as well.

Green's stick has become something of a big deal in Washington because the one he uses on occasion, the discontinued Easton Stealth CNT, is a throwback to his 31-goal, 73-point season in 2008-09, which was by far Green's best season in his 10 years in the NHL.

He has 40 points this season in what is arguably his strongest season since 2008-09. Part of the reason might have something to do with the rare stick, which Easton stopped making in 2007.

"Every time I see that stick and I pick it up, whether it's to sign for a fan or whatnot, I can tell right away why I liked it," Green said Sunday prior to Washington's 5-2 win against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. "They discontinued it and ever since then I haven't had that same feel."

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
