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.

Just a cut, according to Babcock post game. Thank god.

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.

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.''

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!

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.

Fantastic news, you can easily argue he has been our third best skater/player this season (behind Datsyuk and Lidstrom - Howard excluded) and losing him right now would be a blow...

They won't know til tomorrow. He will play if they are able to make him a boot for his skate that does not bother his cut... imo they will be able to do that and he will be playing. But, we will not know for sure until tomorrow.

So relieved to hear he's okay! :D

The only thing that sucks is that tomorrow is the Wings first game on TV here in Aus, and likely Flip will miss. I have GCL and watch every game anyway, but still...
