DETROIT >> Daniel Alfredsson will miss his second straight playoff game due to a problem with his back.
Wings coach Mike Babcock said Alfredsson, who has no points and no shots in goals in two games in this series with Boston, could be ready for Game 5 on Saturday back in Boston.
“Alfredsson is feeling better and the trainers told me that he should be ready to go by Saturday,” Babcock said. “I mean, could you throw him in the game? Probably. He hasn’t practiced in a while and we don’t really know. We’re trying to put the best lineup that we can on the ice to help us win.”
