Red Wings Update

Here just a few tidbits of news on the best team in pro sports from the past decade:

Valterri Filppula is inching closer to a return. Thank the heavens for this. This will likely allow Zetterberg and Datsyuk to line up together regularly, and allow Filppula a to get moving on his potential break out season. Mike Babcock said he was their best player before going down with the injury.

Speaking of Finnish Wings, Ville Leino will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game. He played well with Zetterberg, but the puck just wasn’t going in for him.

Jimmy Howard is starting once again tomorrow night for the Wings against St. Louis. That gives him starts in 12 of the Wings last 16 games. Although Osgood was out with an injury for some of that time…WOW.

After scoring 14 points in his first 16 games, Mikael Samuelsson is realizing why Detroit did not want to pay him $2.5 million over the next three season; he has six points in his last 13 games.
