Roose: Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader’s left hand required stitches after a scrap

The Red Wings' "C Team" put forth a worrisome effort in a 5-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night, and DetroitRedWings.com's Bill Roose notes that a needless fight between Justin Abdelkader and Robert Bortuzzo may have left some lasting damage:

Justin Abdelkader was injured during a fight with Penguins defenseman Robert Bortuzzo late in the game. According to the team, the Wings' forward needed stitches to close a laceration to his left hand. More should be known Thursday about Abdelkader's prognosis.

“I haven’t been back to the medical room to see how many casualties we have,” Babcock said. “It seems like every game we’re losing someone so we’ve got to get healthy.”

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
