News: Niklas Kronwall scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's loss to Montreal. He now has four points, including three assists, in his last four games.
Analysis: Is it just us or is this one of the quietest near-50 point seasons for an NHL blueliner? There were plenty of whispers that this guy was a sorry filler for the great Niklas Lidstrom, but he really has demonstrated his game in all zones is very solid. His 48 points are the second-best mark of his career. And there's still time to build on it.

Analysis: Niklas Kronwall had been expected to return from a concussion Wednesday all along until a puck to the face at morning skate temporarily put his availability in question.

Wings' Kronwall Receives Clearance To Play

Red Wings' Kronwall Hopes To Return Next Week

News: Niklas Kronwall (concussion) hopes to return to action within a week, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Wings' Kronwall Unlikely To Play Saturday

News: Niklas Kronwall (concussion) wasn't on the ice for Saturday's morning skate and is unlikely to play against the Coyotes, the Detroit News' Ted Kulfan reports.
Analysis: It would have been something of a minor miracle if Niklas Kronwall were able to return to the ice without missing a game after leaving Thursday's game on a stretcher, but coach Mike Babcock will give him some additional time to recover from the mild concussion. The Red Wings view him as day-to-day and there's a chance he could return to the ice Monday against the Sharks.

Red Wings' Kronwall Considered Day-To-Day

News: Niklas Kronwall's concussion suffered in Thursday's game has been deemed mild, MLive.com's Brendan Savage reports.
Analysis: Because the concussion doesn't appear to be severe, the Red Wings have labeled him as day-to-day rather than out, a somewhat surprising development after he was carted off the ice on a stretcher Thursday night. Concussion timetables can often be quite volatile, however, so if it becomes apparent that Niklas Kronwall is still experiencing symptoms over the next couple of days, his return to game action could be delayed. He will accompany the Red Wings during their trip to Phoenix for Saturday's game, but his availability remains in question.

Analysis: Niklas Kronwall was able to show movement in his arms and legs while receiving treatment in the locker room, a positive sign after he was carted off the ice. In any case, Kronwall could be looking at a multi-game absence as a result of the head injury, though the team should provide updates throughout his recovery process.

Red Wings' Kronwall Lifted From Game On Stretcher
