Abdelkader ruled out Tuesday; Ferraro recalled for either Datsyuk or to give offense a spark

DETROIT >> Wings general manager Ken Holland doesn’t expect Justin Abdelkader (hand) to play Tuesday, but hasn’t ruled him out returning before the end of the regular season.

Abdelkader, who has a career-high 23 goals and 44 points this season, blocked a shot on Saturday of Minnesota’s Marco Scandella 1:06 into overtime and didn’t return to the game.

The team recalled Landon Ferraro from Grand Rapids as an insurance policy just in case Pavel Datsyuk can’t go or Babcock wants to juggle up his lineup.

Holland also had no injury updates on Erik Cole and Tomas Jurco.
