Friday's Injury Updates - Howard, Benn, Zetterberg, Nugent-Hopkins...

Bad time for Zetterberg to go down as he's been hot with 9 points in his last 6 games. Apparently he's been using two sticks.

The whispers were that Jimmy Howard would play tonight but it's Joey MacDonald who will get the start. Howard says he is good to go on Sunday afternoon, however.

Henrik Zetterberg will also be held out of tonight's game with his UBI. The Red Wings are hoping he will be good to go on Sunday.

Jamie Benn suffered a knee injury last night and had to leave the game. I'm hearing it's not serious but he'll likely miss one game to let it heal up.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (shoulder) practiced yesterday in a yellow jersey. He won't play tonight and probably won't play Sunday but looks likely to get into a game next week.

Danny Briere took a nasty hit last night from Patrick Kaleta and he appeared to hit his head on the stanchion. He had to leave the game and did not return. The Flyers are saying UBI and a lot of others are saying shoulder, but it looks like it could be a concussion to me.

Mike Green (sports hernia) will be traveling with the team for their weekend road trip to Florida (Panthers and Lightning). I'm not sure if this means he'll get into one of those games.

Jaromir Jagr (illness) and Andrej Meszaros (UBI) both couldn't go last night.

Evgeni Nabokov had a stomach bug and missed last night's game. Consequently, Al Montoya was lit up by the Blues. Sorry jsuites.

Sheldon Souray (foot) missed his fourth straight game last night. He's still listed as day to day.

Danny Cleary was placed on IR to free up a roster spot for Tomas Tatar.

Returning from the injured: Cal Clutterbuck, Jakub Voracek, Ilya Bryzgalov, Matt Gilroy
