from Ansar Khan of Mlive,
Defenseman Niklas Kronwall (knee) did not skate and will not play Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings (4 p.m., Fox Sports Net Detroit). Kronwall, injured during the first period of Tuesday’s 4-2 win in San Jose when he was slew-footed by Jed Ortmeyer, said he wants to give the knee a rest. He expects to skate Monday and be ready for Tuesday’s game in St. Louis.
“It feels better than it did right after the San Jose game,’’ Kronwall said. “Take it day by day, hopefully two more days can make it even better. I think this will do me good in the long run.’’
As for the play by Ortmeyer, Kronwall said, “I think stuff like that happens pretty much every game. I don’t think he meant to do it on purpose whatsoever. I just happened to be here. I got all my body weight on the left side and he kind of came in underneath me.’’
