DETROIT (AP) - Henrik Zetterberg’s left knee has not gotten healthy enough for him to play.

Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock says Zetterberg won’t be in the lineup Saturday in Game 2 against the Phoenix Coyotes. Babcock says Zetterberg will make the trip when the series shifts to Arizona and hopes he plays soon.

Zetterberg has been skating and trying to strengthen his left knee in the weight room after practices.

The Red Wings won the opener of the first-round rematch without Zetterberg. He had 80 points during the regular season, 18 more than any teammate. The Swede missed the last two games of the regular season and Game 1 after getting checked by Carolina’s Bryan Allen in loss to the Hurricanes.
