The Detroit Red Wings will be without Todd Bertuzzi (back) and Darren Helm (back) on Tuesday night.
Coach Mike Babcock said the Wings were waiting for Bertuzzi to "turn the corner," but his recovery hasn't gone as planned. Between his wonky back and advanced age, the 38-year-old Bertuzzi is unlikely to make any sort of a fast recovery. Babcock also said that he didn't think Helm was very close to returning from his mysterious back ailment, either. At this point, owners just have to play the waiting game and hope for a better update tomorrow.
