DETROIT -- Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios missed his
third straight playoff game against Calgary on Saturday because of
an undisclosed injury.
Chelios is thought to be bothered by a sore arm or shoulder, but
the Red Wings will only say that he is injured.
It's believed that Chelios was hurt when he was hit by Flames
forward Oleg Saprykin during Game 2. Chelios went to the dressing
room right after the hit, but returned to the game.
The 42-year-old Chelios has played in 222 playoff games -- in 20
postseasons -- and trails only Larry Robinson (227) and Scott
Stevens (233) among NHL defensemen. He has one assist in eight
playoff games this year, and 137 points in his career, trailing
only Al MacInnis among active defenseman.
