Datsyuk left behind after taking elbow to face

DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings superstart center Pavel Datsyuk didn't make the trip to Buffalo for Sunday's game against the Sabres. Datsyuk was elbowed in the face by Ottawa's Jared Cowen with 7 minutes, 48 seconds to play in a 4-2 Red Wings loss Saturday night. There was no penalty called on the play. Datsyuk played three more shifts, but his last was just 12 seconds...

Video: Pavel Datsyuk Injured by Cheap Elbow From Ottawa’s Jared Cowen

The Ottawa Senators took the Detroit Red Wings off their game Saturday night with a physical, aggressive display. But defenseman Jared Cowen may have taken things a bit too far. Cowen somehow got away with a blatant elbow to the jaw of Pavel Datsyuk, which stunned Detroit’s star forward — Datsyuk will not play Sunday in Buffalo, with the Wings monitoring him for a possible concussion...

Video: Jared Cowen elbows Pavel Datsyuk, escapes NHL discipline

Ottawa's Jared Cowen delivered a nasty elbow to the head of Detroit's Pavel Datsyuk. The incident looked pretty bad live, but replays proved Cowen went out of his way to stick Datsyuk in the head with his elbow long after the puck left the area.  Surely Cowen would receive some sort of punishment from the NHL after this hit, right? Of course not. This is the NHL and...

Khan’s update on Pavel Datsyuk: no news is no news regarding the Red Wings fowrard’s cobwebs

Via RedWingsFeed, MLive's Ansar Khan offers an update on Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk's status, and it sounds like Wings fans will have to wait until Tuesday's practice to find out whether Datsyuk has recovered from Jared Cowen's unpenalized and non-disciplined elbow to #13's jaw to the point that Datsyuk can pass his baseline neurological test and return to...

Red Wings' Datsyuk to miss game Sunday

The Detroit Red Wings will be without center Pavel Datsyuk when they visit the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday due to a possible concussion. Datsyuk did not make the trip to Buffalo after being elbowed in the jaw by defenseman Jared Cowen with 7:48 remaining in the Ottawa Senators' 4-2 victory Saturday at Joe Louis Arena. No penalty was called on the play. Datsyuk was shaken up momentarily...

Jared Cowen Avoids Suspension

NHL looked at Cowen hit on Datsyuk and ruled that there will be no suspension. #sens — Wayne Scanlan (@HockeyScanner) November 24, 2013 The Jared Cowen hit in question was an elbow that he delivered to Pavel Datsyuk's head, or as the Detroit Red Wings announcers would say, 'Right in the jaw. RIGHT IN THE JAW!" Datsyuk was being held out of today'...

Red Wings-Sabres game-day updates: expect Cowen to dodge supplemental discipline

Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk did not accompany his teammates to Buffalo for today's game against the Sabres (5 PM EST, FSD/MSG Buffalo/1270 AM) because Datsyuk was hit in the jaw by Senators defensman Jared Cowen with about 7:50 left in the 3rd period of the Wings' 4-2 loss to Ottawa on Saturday evening (and again, thanks to Puck Daddy for the video)... And the...

MLive’s Savage offers encouraging news regarding Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk

I'm not sure how to take this, but MLive's Brendan Savage reports that the Red Wings' coach suggests his possibly-concussed player is doing solidly enough given that he took an unpenalized and un-league-disciplined hit to the jaw last night: [C]oach Mike Babcock made contact today with Datsyuk, who remained behind in Detroit while his teammates traveled to Buffalo...

Red Wings-Sabres wrap-up and overnight report: Doctor Babs’ team earns a gritty win

Before we begin, I had to shake my head at this pre-no-suspension-warranted take on Jared Cowen's elbow to Pavel Datsyuk's jaw (He's okay! We hope!) from the Edmonton Journal's Jim Matheson... Nice Jared Cowen elbow to Pavel Datsyuk’s jaw Saturday that on-ice officials overseeing the Ottawa Senators-Detroit Red Wings clash somehow missed. “He had the puck...

Pavel Datsyuk 'feeling better' after elbow to jaw

The Detroit Red Wings are going through concussion protocols for superstar Pavel Datsyuk, but he is improving daily and may not be out long. General manager Ken Holland told the Free Press today that Datsyuk is feeling better and will be at Joe Louis Arena on Tuesday. Whether Datsyuk will practice remains to be seen. The Wings are off today after playing back-to-back games over...

The NHl’s reasoning for no supplemental discipline on Cowen via Garrioch

Bruce Garrioch, totally not rubbing it in: Jared Cowen was back in his familiar spot on the Senators’ blueline against Carolina here Sunday night. Much to the displeasure of the Detroit Red Wings. The Wings wanted the book thrown at the club’s defenceman after they claimed top centre Pavel Datsyuk suffered a concussion on an uncalled elbow to the head in the third period...

Travis Yost: G24: Senators @ Hurricanes

Breaking normal pre-game routine here, because apparently there's a lot of debate about whether or not Jared Cowen should be suspended for his hit on Pavel Datsyuk Saturday night. At first blush, Cowen's third-period check to the head of Datsyuk looked like a bit of a dive -- something I never, in a million years, would have expected from the Russian star. Granted, it...

Red Wings Weekend Recap 11.25.13

The Wings played twice this weekend and came away with two points. I’d say “I’ll take it” but I think they can do so much better. This post will mostly just touch on the important things that happened in both games. More after the jump: Pavel Datyuk’s status is still unknown after taking an unpunished elbow from Jared Cowen. Lame. The loss to the Senators...

Red Wings off-day news: Forbes says Wings 9th-most-valuable NHL team; on Z, Mule, Gustavsson & Alfie

The Red Wings aren't practicing today and Wings coach Mike Babcock's heading to Montreal to receive an honorary doctorate from McGill University, so we're likely to hear very little about Pavel Datsyuk's status until tomorrow's practice and team visit to Children's Hospital. On the heels of the Red Wings' 3-2 win over Buffalo yesterday afternoon, there...

Red Wings-Senators quick take: Wings lose at the lumber yard

I'm going to let you guys figure this one out. The Detroit Red Wings out-shot Ottawa 17-7 in the 1st period, surrendered two goals, one assisted by Quincey's foot and another scored by Smith's skate, and then it turned into a *#$%@& lumber yard--including a Smith-Chris Neil fight and the CBC accusing Pavel Datsyuk of diving after he got elbowed in the jaw--and the...
