Nick Kronwall suffered a right hip injury early in last night’s game and was taken to a local Detroit hospital for further observation.
Mike Babcock said after the game the Wings had yet to receive an update.
Here we are, mid-afternoon on Saturday, and still nothing.
Our two sports radio stations are either talking NCAA basketball or who the Detroit Lions should draft.
No mention of Kronwall all day.
Our beat writers must be busy, nothing from them either.
Come on folks, are we talking about losing a top 4 dman for the week, a month, a day, someone let us know.
update 2:35pm, from the CP via TSN,
Detroit Red Wings defenceman Niklas Kronwall is expected to be out for as much as two months after suffering a non-displaced fracture of his sacrum during Friday’s game against Dallas.
The team also announced Saturday that captain Nicklas Lidstrom will miss Sunday’s game in Columbus because of a lower back strain.
Detroit has re-called defenceman Kyle Quincey from AHL Grand Rapids and expects to have defenceman Brett Lebda back in the lineup Sunday for the first time since suffering a concussion on March 24.
