COLUMBUS, Ohio -- More bad news for the Detroit Red Wings, as coach Mike Babcock said after Friday's 3-2 shootout loss to Columbus that forward Tomas Holmstrom suffered a broken right hand late in the third period and will be out at least four weeks.
Holmstrom said he's not sure it was from a slash or he got hit with the puck.
"I don’t know, I was battling around the net and I felt something,'' Holmstrom said. "I got to the bench and I felt like I can’t hold onto the stick anymore.’’
He will see a hand specialist on Saturday to determine if surgery is needed.
“I feel like (bleep),'' Holmstrom said.
The Red Wings, who have no extra healthy skaters, are expected to recall Tomas Tatar from the Grand Rapids Griffins.
