Datsyuk to miss Game 2 - 5-31-09

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk will miss tonight's Game 2 due to a foot injury. He has not played since he was injured while blocking a shot in Game 2 of the Western Conference final. Additionally, forward Kris Draper will not dress. He has been hobbled by a groin injury throughout the playoffs.

EN Says: Again, there's never a way to really replace anyone like Datsyuk, but the Red Wings find ways to overcome things like this.
