Zetterberg skates for first time since injury

DETROIT — An encouraging sign was seen on the Joe Louis Arena ice when Henrik Zetterberg skated for the first time since injuring his left knee on a hit by Carolina’s Bryan Allen on April 6.

Wings coach Mike Babcock did not know if he would be able to play in Game 2 Saturday afternoon.

“He skated today,” Babcock said. “There’s always a chance (he’ll play). He’s day-to-day, that’s what I keep telling you.”

The Wings had an optional practice Thursday and very few regulars took part in.

Zetterberg led the Wings in points this season with 80.

  1. Great sign, but I hope he doesn’t push it too much just to come back. If they keep winning he may as well rest a few more days to get as close to 100% as possible.
