Filppula misses practice; will play vs. Kings

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Coming off their two impressive home wins against Nashville and Vancouver, the Red Wings were back on the ice preparing for their Wednesday game against the defending Stanley Cup champions at Staples Center.

While forward Johan Franzen (hip) and defenseman Kyle Quincey (ankle) were back at work Tuesday afternoon at the Toyota Sports Center, top six forward Valtteri Filppula sat out with an undisclosed injury, according to general manager Ken Holland.

“You’ll see him tomorrow,” said Holland, as he watched practice with pro scout Bruce Haralson. “He has an injury, but it’s not his knee.”

Filppula, who has four goals and 10 points this season, suffered a sprained MCL while playing in Finland during the lockout. He is just one of nine Red Wings who have played in every game this season.

He admitted to the knee being a source of pain last month, which held him out of some practices.

Filppula missed one game last season, finishing third in team scoring with 23 goals and 43 assists.
