Wings without Datsyuk, Cleary

Newark, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk is considered day-to-day with knee inflammation and right wing Dan Cleary is also sidelined with a knee injury.

Datsyuk will miss Tuesday's game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games.

It's been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. He missed nearly all of January with a leg injury and sat out seven games in November and December with a concussion.

Despite the injuries, Datsyuk is still Detroit's second-leading goal scorer with 15 and is fourth on the team with 33 points.

Cleary has four goals and four assists in 52 games this season.
