Hatcher day-to-day

Derian Hatcher's injury isn't as bad as we all feared. He has a bruised shoulder from his collision with Chris Simon last night and is listed as day-to-day. Team spokesman John Hahn said today that it is unknown whether Hatcher will be able to play Thursday night in Phoenix. He could not finish the game last night and left in the third period after hitting Simon behind the net. The Wings have recalled Anders Myrvold from Grand Rapids, hopefully just as insurance. This certainly is a relief. Losing Hatcher again for a long period would have been terrible and would have made an already tough up-coming post season even tougher. It's good to hear he'll be back relatively soon but it's a shame he has to sit out even more. He really needs to be playing in order to prepare for the playoffs and with this type of injury, all he can do is skate. I doubt he'll be back on Thursday because if it were that easy, he would have finished the game last night. Hopefully he'll only miss one or two games and no more.
