The Red Wings have had injuries this season, but none would be as costly as this one if Henrik Zetterberg is out for any extended period of time.
Zetterberg sat out Sunday's 7-1 loss to Chicago with a sore groin. And don't expect to see him tonight when Colorado visits Joe Louis Arena, either.
"This is what I do know about groins," said coach Mike Babcock, who has had plenty of experience with this type of injury as a coach over the years. "If you missed today, you're probably not playing tomorrow."
General manager Ken Holland termed Zetterberg "day to day."
Zetterberg would obviously be a difficult player to replace. He's tied for the team lead in assists with Pavel Datsyuk with 24, and has eight goals. Zetterberg's 32 points trails only Datsyuk (35) for the team lead.

Zetterberg will miss his second straight game with a groin injury and is considered day-to-day. Zetterberg told reporters today that tests revealed "something" but didn't elaborate.
Wings general manager Ken Holland said that something was inflammation, but said the injury was "nothing serious."
