Zetterberg sustains lower-body injury
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)
Coach Mike Babcock said following the Hurricanes' 3-0 victory he thought Zetterberg ''got his leg tangled up with someone'' and that the forward would be evaluated after the team's return to Detroit.
Babcock said he assumes Zetterberg probably won't play through this weekend, but ''he'll get checked out by our people, and we'll go from there.''
Zetterberg appeared to be shaken up when he was hit by Hurricanes defenseman Bryan Allen midway through the first period.
He currently leads the Red Wings, and entered the night eighth in the NHL, with 80 points on 24 goals and 56 assists.
