Glendening day to day with lower-body injury

Blashill does not expect Glendening for Tuesday; Tomas Nosek ready to go

RALEIGH, N.C. - One up, one down.

That has been the case throughout much of the season for the Red Wings in terms of injuries.

Luke Glendening did not play the last 7:17 of the first period and the team announced before the beginning of the second that he would not return due to a lower-body injury.

"I don't expect Glennie tomorrow," Wings coach Jeff Blashill said after the game. "I'd say day to day. Lower-body injury."

Darren Helm had just returned after missing four games with a lower-body injury and was playing on a line with Glendening and Drew Miller.

"I eased Helmer in a little bit but I thought he played well," Blashill said. "In the end, it was important he tested that leg. He wasn't sure, it doesn't feel 100 percent, so he wasn't sure how he was going to feel out there, but he was in some battles. Obviously, the second period, had the big penalty kill."

Helm played 11:34 and had two shots on goal, including a breakaway.

Glendening was a healthy scratch March 16 at Arizona but has played every other game.

With Helm's return, Tomas Nosek was scratched so he is available for Tuesday's game.
