SAN JOSE (CBS/AP) – San Jose forward Ryane Clowe will miss Game 6 of the Sharks’ second-round series against Detroit.
Coach Todd McLellan said Clowe didn’t make the trip to Detroit for Tuesday’s night’s game because of an upper-body injury. Clowe leads San Jose with 13 points this postseason.
The Red Wings will be without Johan Franzen, who re-injured his left ankle in Game 5. Veteran forward Mike Modano is expected to play after appearing in only one game this postseason, in the first round against Phoenix.
Franzen had 28 goals and 27 assists during the regular season.
Detroit lost the first three games of this series but won Games 4 and 5 by 4-3 scores.
