Just when the Detroit Red Wings are making a big push for the playoffs with a depleted roster they got some encouraging bit of news; Pavel datsyuk is getting closer to a return.
On Monday the Red Wings star, who was shut down just after the Olympics for an ongoing knee issue, tweeted that he was going to start skating.
Dear All, I started skating. Hoping to play soon. Thanks for your support!
