Red Wings’ Zetterberg Out With Lower Body Injury

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg will miss at least one game and is day to do with a lower body injury.

Zetterberg won’t be in the lineup Friday night at home against the Nashville Predators. Tomas Tatar was called up Thursday from the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins to take Zetterberg’s roster spot.

Zetterberg was injured in Tuesday’s night win over Dallas, but he was able to finish the game. The Red Wings have won an NHL single-season record 21 straight games at home.

Goaltender Jimmy Howard is expected to return for Sunday’s home game against the San Jose Sharks. Howard has missed six games with a broken right index finger.
