Red Wings Injury Update: Datsyuk misses Tuesday's game with sore groin

By on 11/19/2014 12:44:00 AM

Pavel Datsyuk's return to the Detroit Red Wings' lineup was brief at best. Datsyuk's groin injury kept him out of the lineup Tuesday against Columbus after returning to the lineup for two games last weekend.

He had missed the previous two games before because of the sore groin.

Daniel Cleary took Datsyuk's spot in the lineup, although as coach Mike Babcock said, given Datsyuk's offensive abilities, "no one is replacing Pavel."

Babcock said Datsyuk did not make the trip to Columbus. The Red Wings will return to Detroit and practice Wednesday before flying out in the evening to Winnipeg.

Whether Pavel Datsyuk will be ready for the Thursday's against the Winnipeg Jets game remains to be seen.
