Red Wings' Datsyuk expects to miss a week

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk left the game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night with a shoulder injury and was scheduled to have an MRI either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Datsyuk, who took a hit from Penguins defenseman Rob Scuderi, doesn't believe the injury is serious. The Red Wings open the regular season on Oct. 9 against the Boston Bruins at Joe Louis Arena.

"I [don't] want to miss much time, just I hope one week," Datsyuk told the Red Wings website. "We'll see."

Datsyuk's power-play goal at 16:05 of the second period proved to be the game-winner in Detroit's 2-1 victory.
