Already missing defensemen Nick Lidstrom (ankle), Jonathan Ericsson (wrist), Pavel Datsyuk (knee) and Patrick Eaves (jaw, concussion), the Wings lost two more players againstthe Chicago Blackhawks Sunday afternoon.

Then goaltender Jimmy Howard did not start the second period. Instead, Joey MacDonald was in net. The team said it was a lower-body injury.
