DETROIT (AP) -Detroit Red Wings star Nicklas Lidstrom expects to be out for three weeks with an injured right knee.
Lidstrom says his knee is sore, but it felt better Wednesday than he thought it would after being slammed into the boards earlier this week by Colorado's Ian Laperrier. The five-time Norris Trophy winner says Laperrier's hit was not dirty.
Goaltender Dominik Hasek and defenseman Brian Rafalski have been put on injured reserve, adding to Detroit's injury woes, and were replaced on the roster by forward Mark Hartigan and defenseman Jonathan Ericsson.
