DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall sustained a lower-body injury against the New York Rangers at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday.
Kronwall was helped off the ice in the middle of the second period after getting his right leg stuck and twisted between Detroit goalie Petr Mrazek and New York right wing Jesper Fast during a goal-mouth scramble.
Kronwall missed 15 games in January and February because of arthroscopic knee surgery. He has three goals and 17 assists in 53 games this season.
The Red Wings won 3-2 in overtime.
