DETROIT – Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom tried skating Thursday, but it didn’t last long.
“I can still feel the pain,” Lidstrom said. “So it’s still day-by-day and hopefully each day I’ll get better.
“I wouldn’t think so (Saturday),” Lidstrom added. “It’s been almost two weeks now so I think I need a practice or two before playing in a game. I doubt that I’ll be playing on Saturday. Probably on that West Coast trip, if it feels better, if I don’t have that pain when I put the skate on.”
