Broken hand sidelines Datsyuk
DETROIT – The Red Wings star Pavel Datsyuk suffered a broken right hand during the first period of Wednesday’s game against Vancouver at Joe Louis Arena.

Datsyuk, who leads the Red Wings in scoring this season with 12 goals and 27 assists, fell awkwardly in front of the Canucks’ net. He skated to the Wings’ bench favoring his right side.

“He’s got a broken hand or wrist, or something like that,” Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “He’ll be out about four weeks.”

Datsyuk has missed only three regular-season games since the 2007-08 season. He skated more than five-minutes on eight shifts Wednesday before the injury.

“It’s unfortunate. There’s nothing we can do about it,” Babcock said. “We have to find a way to dig in, just like we did tonight to get the job done, and (there’s) more opportunity for someone else.”

The Red Wings came from behind to defeat the Canucks, 5-4, in overtime Wednesday when fellow Euro Twin, Henrik Zetterberg, scored at 2:59.

According to Babcock, surgery will not be necessary for Datsyuk, who was already had his right hand in a cast before the conclusion of Wednesday’s game.

Datsyuk is the second Red Wings' forward sidelined with a hand/wrist injury this season. Center Mike Modano had surgery to repair tendon and nerve damage when he was cut by a skate in a game at Columbus on Nov. 26. Modano is expected to be out of the line up until March.
