Zetterberg is out for Game 2
DETROIT – For the second straight playoff game, the Red Wings will be without star forward Henrik Zetterberg, when they host Phoenix in Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinals Saturday at Joe Louis Arena.

Zetterberg has been sidelined with a lower body injury since last Wednesday when he was involved in a blue line collision at Carolina.

Zetterberg skated alone for 15 minutes Friday morning at Joe Louis Arena, but did not join the team for its practice.

“Hank skated, by himself, and he’s not going to play in Game 2,” Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “He’ll continue to be day-to-day. And I just talked to him, I just asked him if he was playing, so … he’s not.”
 Zetterberg will make the trip to Arizona for Games 3 and 4 at Arena. But his status for the two upcoming road games is still day-to-day.
“Zetterberg’s making the trip, for sure,” Babcock said, “and we’re hoping he’s playing here soon.” Intern Mike Caples contributed to this report.
