Dominik Hasek is expected to miss that game as well as the one on Sunday against the Colorado Avalanche with a thigh injury.
"I had a little bit of tightness after the game against Chicago (Tuesday) and yesterday at practice," Hasek said. "There's a bit of tightness in my thigh and the trainers said it would be good to stay off the ice.
Hasek's is just the latest injury to an already-depleted Red Wings team. Tomas Kopecky has been out since December with a broken collarbone, Mikael Samuelsson suffered a broken foot in late January, Dan Cleary sprained his knee last week, and both Henrik Zetterberg and recently-acquired Todd Bertuzzi are out with back injuries.
