Red Wings Lose Leading Goal Scorer
The Detroit Red Wings are down another key offensive threat, after the team lost leading goal-scorer Danny Cleary Sunday with a fractured left ankle. Cleary will be out at least four weeks after getting hit with a shot by teammate Brad Stuart during the third period of Detroit’s 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center. The Red Wings recalled forward Jan Mursak from the Grand Rapids Griffins. He’ll make his NHL debut Monday night in Colorado. Mursak is the Griffins’ fourth-leading scorer with 23 points (10 goals, 13 assists) in 33 games.
