DENVER -- Detroit Red Wings forward Valtteri Filppula won't return to Sunday's game against the Colorado Avalanche after sustaining a lower-body injury.

Filppula got tripped along the boards by David Jones. There was no penalty called.

No word yet on the extent of what appears to be a lower leg injury.

Please let him be okay! Anyone with an update post in here.

No update per se but it sure looked like a slew foot to me.

Disappointed Bertuzzi didn't confront Jones after that hit.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Indeed. Thanks for the quick relay of the info for those of us who can't get the postgame show.

But the question is the severity of the cut. I'm sure they were just being safe, but you never know with how secretive teams are these days. If it is a deep cut he may be out for a bit. Hopefully it is just them being safe so he can be ready to go on Tuesday.

Day to day.

Though still, dude was on fire. When he comes back I'm guessing he'll need a few games to get back to that level.

Detroit Red Wings forward Valtteri Filppula suffered a cut on his leg late in the first period Sunday."He got a cut on his leg above his skate,'' coach Mike Babcock said. "We sent him to have it looked at. We don't know if it's serious or not serious.''

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Lets hope it's not a serious cut, like Modano or anything. :unsure:

That was my concern on Flips injury. Let's hope for the best.

There's no way it's as serious - Mo had an exposed body part, on a part of the body which has a LOT of tendons, the only equivilency on the leg, is the achiles, which is protected by the skate boot... the only real fear here, is the back of the knee, but other than that, hopefully it's just something that needs to be allowed to heal for a week or so, and he'll be right back...

Get well soon Flip!

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

as much as id like to see Gustav get a call up, i think theyll just slot Emmerton into the line whilst on this road trip.

If Fil is out then they might just roll with

Franzen-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi
Hudler/Holmstrom/Miller-Zetterberg-Cleary (Ugh...)
Adelkader-Helm-Conner
Holmstrom-Emmerton-Miller

So... I really hope Fil ISN'T out. Ugh.

Great news for the Wings- - A loss of Fil would have been really difficult to deal with because he has been playing so well and has helped Zetterberg play better as well.
