The Detroit Red Wings will be without defenseman Niklas Kronwall, although for how long remains to be seen.
Kronwall suffered a mild concussion after he was driven from behind and face-first into the end boards by Colorado Avalanche forward Cody McLeod on Thursday and is, according to what Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told Detroit media, “day-to-day.”
Kronwall was taken off the ice on a stretcher, while McLeod was given a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.
McLeod now faces an in-person hearing with the NHL. That means he could receive a suspension of six games or more.
