Henrik Zetterberg hopes that the Red Wings have hit rock bottom after Saturday's 7-2 loss to Philadelphia.

"You have to hit rock bottom before you can turn it around," Henrik Zetterberg said. "Hopefully we did that today. "I'd rather have this now than in four weeks (the start of the playoffs). But in the same way, if we want to keep playing in four weeks, we have to make some changes. We know we can play better. But it starts with someone doing it." The Red Wings have lost two in a row and four of their last five contests. Detroit is still third in the Atlantic division, but they are now just three points ahead of the Boston Bruins.

Henrik Zetterberg (concussion) is questionable for Wednesday's game.

Zetterberg was able to take part in Monday and Tuesday's practices. Even still, Zetterberg's availability won't be determined until after Detroit's skate Wednesday morning. He skated alongside newcomers Erik Cole and Justin Abdelkader.

Henrik Zetterberg (upper body) participated in his first full practice Monday.

"Felt good. It was fun to be out there again," Zetterberg said. "It's my first practice since (a week ago) Saturday, so obviously tomorrow is another one and hopefully I'll be cleared for contact tomorrow and go from there." He could be on track to return Wednesday, but you should still consider him day-to-day.

Coach Mike Babcock thinks Henrik Zetterberg (upper body) could be ready to return Wednesday against the Rangers.

He skated for roughly 10 minutes on Thursday and felt much better even though his "symptoms" haven't disappeared completely. Zetterberg said he doesn't have a target date in mind yet and he's taking the ailment one day at a time.
Feb 26 - 3:53 PM

Henrik Zetterberg will not play in Tuesday's tilt with the Los Angeles Kings.

"I have some symptoms that I don't have when I'm 100 percent," Zetterberg said. "Until those symptoms go away, we've just got to take it easy." The Captain was coy with what ails him, but it's likely a concussion. He shares the team lead with Pavel Datsyuk with 49 points through 57 games this season to go along with 15 goals. Zetterberg has also won 53% of his faceoffs thus far.

Henrik Zetterberg (head) doesn't feel like he's made any progress since he was hit in the head on Saturday.

"Hopefully, I will feel better soon," Zetterberg said. "I thought it would be better but unfortunately, no. The symptoms have got to go away before I can do anything more heavy. Until then I've just got to take it easy." Zetterberg said he hasn't "ruled it as a concussion," but based on what he's saying, it sure sounds like a concussion. Either way, he rode a stationary bike on Monday and intends to take it easy until the symptoms go away.

Henrik Zetterberg (head) is projected to miss Tuesday's game.

Zetterberg was also unavailable on Monday. He's not feeling well, which given that he was hit in the head, makes us wonder if he has a concussion. Despite that, the Red Wings aren't putting him through the concussion protocol. "I don't think we think there's any need to," Red Wings GM Ken Holland. Consider Zetterberg day-to-day for now.
Feb 24 - 2:39 PM

Henrik Zetterberg (head) will be held out of Monday's game versus the Anaheim Ducks.

After taking a hit to the head from Jamie Benn in the second period of Saturday's game, Zetterberg will be held out of Monday's contest in Anaheim. Detroit head coach Mike Babcock also stated that their captain will most likely be held out Tuesday's game in Los Angeles as well. This could be a big blow for the Red Wings and Zetterberg fantasy owners as he was leading the Wings in scoring this season with 15 goals and 34 assists in 57 games played.
Feb 23 - 8:24 PM

Henrik Zetterberg (head) will probably miss Monday's game.

Zetterberg might be unavailable on Tuesday too. He has 15 goals and 49 points in 57 contests in 2014-15. If he misses the game, Gustav Nyquist will probably move up to the Red Wings' second line.
