Toronto Maple Leafs DFS SPIN
John Klingberg (Undisclosed) likely to miss Friday’s game against Detroit, according to Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun.
Klingberg missed last Friday’s 5-4 win over Calgary with an undisclosed injury before returning Saturday against Vancouver. Despite logging 19:00 of ice time against the Canucks, coach Sheldon Keefe suggested Wednesday that the defenseman is not fully recovered. In 14 games this year, Klingberg has 5 assists, 7 negative points, 11 hits and 14 blocks.
Detroit Red Wings DFS SPIN
James Rymer Stopped 29 shots in Thursday’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Senators. It was a strange affair in Stockholm, as Ottawa jumped out to a 4-0 lead early in the second period, but the Detroit Storm saw off and tied it before the second stoppage. Reimer made several big stops to help keep the comeback alive, but he’ll probably be looking for another layup in the OT winner — with just two seconds left, Tim Stotzel swung the netminder’s hands in the air. It lost sight, and flew overhead as Rymer reflexively ducked.
It’s the first time this season that the 35-year-old has given up more than three goals in a game, but despite a 2.30 GAA and a .917 save percentage, he’s just 2-2-2. With Will Husso back in North America for the birth of his child, Alex Lyon will likely be in China for the Red Wings on Friday against the Maple Leafs.
