Lidstrom, Kindl, Bertuzzi, Howard all expected to be out Tuesday

DETROIT — Heatlty bodies are a hard thing to find in the Wings’ locker rooom these days.

Today, Detroit recalled defenseman Doug Janik, forward Chris Conner and goaltender Jordan Pearce from the Grand Rapids Griffins.

All three are expected to be dressed for Tuesday’s game in Philadelphia.

Nicklas Lidstrom (bone bruise) is expected to miss Tuesday’s game. It’ll be his fourth straight game he has missed since getting hit in the right ankle with a puck against Colorado.

He will be re-evaluated today.

Defenseman Jakub Kindl (upper body), Todd Bertuzzi (groin) and Jimmy Howard (lower body) are all expected to miss the game against the Flyers.

Kindl was injured a few minutes into Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Chicago.

Conner was recalled Saturday night and then sent back to Grand Rapids after Todd Bertuzzi was able to play against the Blackhawks.

Pearce will backup Joey MacDonald. Howard is day-to-day.
