DETROIT – The Red Wings will be without their captain Henrik Zetterberg for the second straight game when the Colorado Avalanche visits Joe Louis Arena on Monday evening.

Zetterberg said he suffered a groin injury at some point in the team’s 2-0 loss at San Jose last Thursday. And though he skated in pregame warm-ups on Sunday, he did not play in the 7-1 loss to Chicago.

“I wanted to feel how it felt out there, and it wasn’t any better than the day before, so I made the decision not to play,” Zetterberg said. “Didn’t skate today, so I won’t play tonight. See how it is tomorrow.”

The team’s second-leading scorer with eight goals and 24 assists, had tests that, “Showed something, and that’s why I’m not playing,” Zetterberg said.

Coach Mike Babcock confirmed that Zetterberg will miss the game, and reiterated his usual line about groin injuries, saying, “Day-to-day for 10 of them.”

Zetterberg had played in 116 consecutive games, dating back to the end of the 2010-11 season.

“Well, it’s still day to day,” he said. “I will say I feel a few percent better today than yesterday. That’s improvement. So we’re still doing good treatment and hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow than I do today.”
