Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Unavailable for Wednesday's skate

Kronwall (knee) did not skate Wednesday morning, ahead of the evening's road tilt against the Rangers, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Kronwall remains on injured reserve, even though he's technically eligible to return. Detroit is not known for creating much offense from the blue line, but if you need an alternative to the hard-hitting Kronwall, consider taking a peek at Mike Green, who recorded his first career hat trick in Monday's win over the Senators.
