Reports coming out of the morning skate in Montreal today are that Nicklas Lidstrom left the skate early and may miss tonight's game with what Ken Holland is calling "Flu-like symptoms".
MLive's Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive) has the money Tweet:
Wings' Commodore, however, will play if Lidstrom can't. Lidstrom likely will play but wasn't feeling well, left arena right after the skate.
If it does turn out that Lidstrom will miss tonight's game, don't fear, because you'll still get to see him tonight if you have NBC Sports. Lidstrom will be the third NHL athlete featured on their '36' series, in which they have cameras follow and document 36 hours of an NHLer's life. The episode will air tonight prior to NBC Sports' coverage of the Red Wings' game in Montreal.
This will be a great opportunity for fans of hockey to get a glimpse into the life of a truly generational talent and consummate professional. I wouldn't miss this.
[UPDATE: Per the Official Red Wings Twitter, Lidstrom will not play tonight. Both Commodore and Kindl are in]
Nick Lidstrom (illness) will not play against Montreal tonight.
