DETROIT -- Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk was feeling good and in his usual playful mood on Thursday. He told reporters that the arthroscopic knee surgery to remove fragments and clean up the ligament went well and that he should be back in the lineup in early March. I feel good, yeah, everything good, thank you, Datsyuk said when asked about his surgery. Datsyuk said that after last Sunday's victory over San Jose, he felt something in his knee and couldnt move his leg. It may have bothered me a bit before, but nothing like after Sundays game, he said.

When asked if the two-week timeline for his recovery time was still accurate, Datsyuk replied, Yeah, I think so. Two weeks, I hope. We hope. Its bett...
