DETROIT -- Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk will not play for a week to 10 days because of a lower-body injury.

Datsyuk was hurt during Monday night's 2-1 shootout win at Calgary.

He has a team-high 87 points for Detroit, which has clinched the Central Division and is five points ahead of Ottawa for the NHL's best record.

In the victory over the Flames, the Red Wings tied a league record with their 28th road win and broke a team record with their ninth straight win away from home. Detroit has four road games left, including the regular-season finale April 18 at Nashville.
