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.

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.
