Cleary out 4 weeks with separated shoulder

The Red Wings have lost another top-6 forward. With five minutes left in Wednesday night's loss to St. Louis, Dan Cleary collided with Barret Jackman and left the ice in pain.

Today we find out that pain was a separated shoulder, which will keep Cleary out of the lineup for four weeks.

Ville Leino, who has been a healthy scratch the past two games, will be back in the lineup for Friday's game against Anaheim.

Also of note, Jimmy Howard will start in net, Friday.

Bruce we all respect your opinion and blogs and reports on RWC. I think you should get more involved with some of the posts on the site. When we have these big prospect debates you should weigh in since you see these prospects alot more than anyone else. Just a thought. Great job keep it up.

I must say I've never seen the injury bug hit a team like this before. It's almost unthinkable. It is nice to see Howard and Abdelkader step up and try and do what they can. Abs seems to be pushing hard every shift to amke things ahappe. I think the style point will come with experience. Howard sees to have put his nerves behind him and is playing pretty solid as denoted by the lions share of the starts. No knock to Osgood but the regular season counts too. You can't get turned inside out like an old jersey three shooters in a row.
