Helm, Holmstrom out; Kindl back in

DETROIT – Forwards Darren Helm and Tomas Holmstrom will both miss Saturday night’s game with the Leafs. Both are overcoming groin injuries.

“They haven’t been made eligible to us at all, so I don’t know when they’re going to play, but they’re not going to play this weekend, probably,” Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “I don’t know if they’ll play in Chicago, but I doubt it. If they’re not playing (today), why would we play them the next day?”

Defenseman Jakub Kindl will return to the lineup, after being a healthy scratch the last six games. He’ll replace Mike Commodore.

“I’ve just got to keep it simple and play hard, that’s all,” Kindl said. “Play simple and hard and go get the pucks.”
