Wings GM Ken Holland says Johan Franzen and Tomas Tatar are out sick today. Not sure of status for Tuesday's game.

As well as Bill Roose...

Update #2: The players and media then headed back to Joe Louis Arena for interviews...

And this is a good idea, per the Free Press's Helene St. James:

Told by Red Wings trainer team is considering booster shots in wake of mumps outbreak

Update #3: The Macomb Daily's Chuck Pleiness uploaded several videos, including one of the Wings skating at the Univeristy Liggett...

And Riley Sheahan...

Jimmy Howard...

ANd coach Babcock discussing the mumps outbreak throughout the league:

Also, good news from Khan...

Babcock said Tatar and Franzen expected to play tomorrow. Just sick. Not mumps.

...

Babcock said he's preparing as if Abdelkader and DeKeyser will play tomorrow. Weiss is not ready.

...

Babcock said players and staff being offered booster shots to immunize against mumps.

Pleiness...

Wings players and staff all being offered immunization shots to help prevent mumps.

...

Babcock expects Abdelkader and DeKeyser back Tuesday.

Wakiji...

#RedWings will be offering immunizations to players in the next while. Howard said he'd definitely get it.

...

#RedWings Babcock expects Abdelkader, DeKeyser back in tomorrow. Weiss still out.

...

#RedWings Babcock did not say whether Ouellet would definitely go back to @griffinshockey when Abdelkader comes off IR.

...

To clarify, #RedWings Howard plans to get immunized so he doesn't get the mumps, important with toddler, 6-month old at home.

...

#RedWings will start immunizations for those who want it starting tomorrow.

Krupa...

piet van zandt, @DetroitRedWings trainer, says through spokesman wings are offered booster shots for mumps. told to be extra ... 1/2

...

2/2 cautious with flu-type considerations. mumps passed by saliva, mucus. extra cleaning ordered in dressing room areas.

...

babcock says franzen, tatar missed practice due to illness. tatar's described as head cold symptoms. he did not say it, but true that... 1/2

...

2/2 mumps first manifest as flu and cold type symptoms, before exhibiting much worse consequences.

...

babcock says they have been on it for 3 wks. monitoring situation, and rest, nutrition, vitamins, etc. REALLY IMPORTANT now.

...

babcock says the level of concern about illness is so pervasive, he always uses anti-bacterial after shaking hands with fans, etc. ... 1/2

...

2/2 says he has little plunger bottle right in car for that purpose. shakes hands with folks, jumps in car, spritz,, spritz.

...

general reaction around room by players is "mumps? REALLY? wow." not enormous concern, cuz they r heavily into prevention for flu, colds etc

...

babcock said a particular concern about european players.

perhaps, in making sure their immunization program is  consisten with north am.

...

players seemed relieved that no maple leafs have shown symptoms. but d. brassard is segregated, with symptoms, and he crashed crease... 1/2.

...

2/2 memorably on howard in recent game. howard laughed about that, a bit. mumps passed through mucus, saliva exchanges, sneeze, face-to-face

Nitpick: It’s not “University of Liggett,” it’s “University Liggett School.”

The WWE has taken over the JLA

That happens quite often depending on who the refs are.
