Flip's injury is not a result of the team-bonding curling outing. Hopefully it is nothing too serious and Flip can play. The last thing this team needs is another injury to a top 6 player.

CALGARY, Alberta -- Detroit Red Wings forward Valtteri Filppula is questionable for Friday's game against the Calgary Flames (9 p.m., FSD) due to a sore groin that kept him out of Thursday's practice at the Saddledome.

Filppula said his status will be determined after Friday's morning skate.

“I don’t know what happened,'' Filppula said. "I started feeling something in my groin (during Tuesday's 5-3 win in Edmonton). I know I didn’t pull it or anything like that, maybe tweaked it somehow.’’

He's certain Wednesday's team curling outing had nothing to do with it.

“I took it easy there,'' Filppula said. "It definitely wasn’t that.’’

Patrick Eaves (infected elbow) skated and said he's ready to play this time for sure.

Coach Mike Babcock said if Filppula plays, either Jan Mursak or Tomas Tatar will be scratched.

If Filppula can't play, Johan Franzen might center the second line. Eaves will move up to the second line and get some power-play time. Here are the lines they practiced with:

Bertuzzi-Zetterberg-Holmstrom
Hudler-Franzen-Eaves
Draper-Helm-Tatar
Miller-Abdelkader-Mursak

Lidstrom-Stuart
Ericsson-Rafalski
Kronwall-Salei
Kindl

Jimmy Howard will start in goal for Detroit.

Just when he was finally showing that offensive talent we've all been waiting for...

Well I hope he is back soon because I do not like those lines one bit.

Good thing Filppula isn't a top six forward. :ph34r:

That depends on what lineup you are looking at. Hasn't he played 2nd line the last 2 games?

Knock on wood, but..... Am I the only one who is surprised Zetterberg hasn't gotten injured yet?

Psshhhh.... sooo this is where the jinxes happen, eh? Posted Image

All seriousness, yes. This would be absolutely, positively the worst possible time for this so lets just let him do what he does.

That was more a shot at the people around here who think Fil isn't a top-6 forward and that we should trade him, I think. :ph34r:

Edit: he's been centering the second line for a while now, every time Dats and Z get paired up or any time Z or Dats are out with an injury.

Zetterberg is injured, his back has been giving him problems, dating back before that 7-3 win in Dallas, he was questionable. If Datsyuk wasn't hurt I'm sure Zetterberg would be out to rest his back, he's letting Franzen take more draws because of this and just looks in pain out there.

If he hasn't been showing that offensive talent all along, we wouldn't have been waiting for it. ;)

Yeah, it needed it's own thread for posters like me that don't read the 1,000,000 Post Hudler Watch Thread on a daily.

I actually like the lines posted for a couple of different reasons..........

Eaves on the 2nd line! He deserves a shot up front just based on the way he has been playing. Why not?

Draper-Helm-Tatar
Miller-Abdelkader-Mursak

Love that 3rd and 4th line!

well, they are winning.

I'd rather they win and have guys get injured, make the playoffs and have a chance for the cup, than to lose, have no injuries, and not make the playoffs
