The Malik Report

I tried to keep as much of the post-game Niklas Kronwall-Cody McLeod incident stuff in the Red Wings-Avalanche tailings post as possible, but we're getting something of an update, albeit a bit of a sketchy one, on Kronwall's status.
MLive's Brendan Savage reports the following...
Defenseman Niklas Kronwall's status is "day-to-day" after he suffered a mild concussion Thursday night, Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said this afternoon.
And the Detroit News's Ted Kulfan squeezed a little more out of Holland:
"He's not ruled out for Saturday's game yet," said Holland, noting Saturday's game in Phoenix. "I would say (he's) day to day."
Kronwall left the game at 2:13 of the first period on a stretcher, the team later announcing he had a concussion and cuts near his ear. Kronwall was skating back to retrieve a puck when Avalanche forward Cody McLeod checked Kronwall into the boards, Kronwall's head hitting the area between the glass and dasherboards.
