Defenseman Brett Lebda is expected to return to the lineup. He
has been out since suffering a concussion March 24 against the St.
Kronwall was helped off the ice and taken to a hospital after
being injured on a check into the end boards by the Stars' Joel
Lundqvist 24 seconds into the game, which Dallas won 4-3.
Kronwall had a "non-displaced fracture of his sacrum,'' the
team said in a statement. The sacrum is the triangular bone near
the lower end of the spine.
Kronwall has already had a broken leg and major knee surgery
during his three-season NHL career.
The Red Wings also recalled defenseman Kyle Quincey from their American Hockey League affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins.
