Red Wings lose Jonathan Ericsson to injury

DETROIT (AP) -- The banged-up Detroit Red Wings have taken another hit.
  
Defenseman Jonathan Ericsson had an upper-body injury Tuesday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs and didn't play in the third period. He played for 13-plus minutes over the first two periods.

After the game, head coach Mike Babcock said Ericsson suffered a broken finger and will miss some time, adding to the injury crisis that's crippled the team over the last month.

The Red Wings are missing several forwards and had been relatively healthy on the blue line.
