Datsyuk 'likely' for Sunday
By Victoria Matiash
Regardless of the odds laid by the player himself, it seems the probability of Pavel Datsyuk suiting up for the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday is better than 50-50.
As reported by MLive.com, Datsyuk (bruised shoulder) said he's 50-50 for Sunday's contest against the Minnesota Wild, but added that he thinks he'll play. The 34-year-old veteran has been around long enough to get a good sense of whether he feels well enough to compete. Barring a setback, we expect to see the Wings forward on the ice in Minnesota.
