CHICAGO (AP) -Detroit star Pavel Datsyuk's status for Game 3 of the Western Conference finals against the Chicago Blackhawks is still unclear after the Red Wings' morning skate.
Coach Mike Babcock said Datsyuk, who was hit in the foot with a puck during Game 2 on Tuesday night, didn't participate in the on-ice workout at the United Center on Friday. A decision on whether the MVP finalist plays will be made prior to the start of the game in the evening.
Datsyuk had 97 points during the regular season but has managed just seven in 13 playoff games, including only one goal. Detroit leads the series 2-0.
