Wings Will Play Tonight Without Filppula

George asked me to update with any news on Flippula while he was out for a few hours…

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Detroit Red Wings forward Valtteri Filppula won’t play in tonight’s game at St. Louis (7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net Detroit) due to the deep cut he sustained on his lower right shin Sunday in Colorado.

Filppula skated today at Scottrade Center, but didn’t feel comfortable.

“It was sore. I wouldn’t really skate,’’ Filppula said. “The skate (adjustment) was as good as it can be, but I really couldn’t really push it.

I’d have been SHOCKED if he was all systems go. They move at such an incredible level that doing this injured would have been impossible.
