Web exclusive: \'I have a pretty good mark on my chin\'
DETROIT – Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom will have his injured right knee re-examined on Wednesday morning before meeting with team physicians to discuss any prognosis.

“The knee feels sore and a little bit swollen,” Lidstrom told “I'll have an MRI in the morning.”

Lidstrom’s injury occurred in the first period of Monday’s game at Colorado’s Pepsi Center. He was sent into the boards as a result of a monstrous check from the Avs’ Ian Laperriere at about the six-minute mark of the period.

“I have a pretty good mark on my chin where he hit me,” said Lidstrom, a five-time Norris Trophy winner. “Whether he tried to or not, I don't know, but he followed through and finished with his elbow up on my chin and that's when my head went back into the glass.”

Lidstrom appeared to be woozy as he was helped from the ice by trainer Piet Van Zant and teammate Henrik Zetterberg.

“I don't have a headache or anything,” Lidstrom said.
