Red Wings forward Patrick Eaves
didn't practice today while taking a "maintenance day" for an undisclosed ailment. Also, rookie forward Gustav Nyquist
was sent back to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League after getting called up Monday and playing just one game.
Nyquist, who had 4 goals and 9 points for the Griffins before getting brought up, played 11:07 against the Wild and didn't record a point, a shot on goal or a hit in 13 shifts.
