Filppula says that he's feeling better this morning than he did on Tuesday. Says it isn't his decision if he plays tonight or not.

Certainly doesn't sound like Filppula is able to play tonight. The Finnish forward has eight goals and 21 points through 25 games as he establishes himself as one of the better threats on the Red Wings. Expect him to draw back in over the next couple of games.

ST. LOUIS -- Detroit Red Wings forward Valtteri Filppula won't play in tonight's game at St. Louis (7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net Detroit) due to the deep cut he sustained on his lower right shin Sunday in Colorado.

Filppula was unable to stay in yesterday's game and is questionable for tomorrow. The Finnish forward has eight goals and 21 points through 25 games as he establishes himself as one of the better threats on the Red Wings. Expect him to draw back in shortly.

The Red Wings have several players who can perform better in 2011-12, none more so than a trio of top-six forwards -- Johan Franzen, Valtteri Filppula and Jiri Hudler -- who coach Mike Babcock said need to have "bounce-back years."

Filppula continues to tease fantasy hockey owners with a highly talented game that could easily elevate into a true scorer. However, his 35-40 point outputs have fallen well short of those predictions. He could approach 50 points if he remains Henrik Zetterberg's left wing.
