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.
