Weiss is likely to be replaced in the lineup by Justin Abdelkader for Tuesday's Game 3, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.Weiss struggled much of the second half of the year, and has been in and out of the lineup during that span. He was skating in a red jersey with the top six forwards Monday, so it looks like if Justin Abdelkader plays on Tuesday, Weiss will be the odd man out.

Weiss assisted on the first Detroit goal and potted the second on a power play Thursday in a 3-2 loss to the Bruins.Things were looking good after his early-third-period tally put Detroit up 2-0, but the Wings collapsed thereafter. Weiss's hot start to the year in November and December has been long forgotten at this point -- with two points in the first game of April, he's matched his totals from February and March.

Weiss will reenter the lineup Thursday against the Sharks, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.Weiss had been a healthy scratch in the past five games for the Red Wings, as the recently acquired Erik Cole has effectively replaced him in the lineup. However, with Cole sustaining an upper-body injury Tuesday night and ruled out Thursday, Weiss will get a chance to skate again. Weiss is expected to slot in on the club's fourth line next to Joakim Andersson and Teemu Pulkkinen.

Weiss did not play in Monday's 5-2 win against Edmonton, being the victim of a healthy scratch.Weiss only has one point in his last 11 games and is a minus-4 in that span. His playing time had dropped to less than 10 minutes a few times in that span, and he doesn't appear to figure large in the Detroit attack as of now. His replacement, Tomas Jurco, is also struggling, however, so he may battle Jurco for playing time the rest of the season.

Weiss lit the lamp Wednesday in a 4-1 losing effort against Pittsburgh.Although he's been streaky, Weiss is having a pretty good season. Since finally getting healthy, he has 18 points (seven goals) in 30 games. While he's been feast or famine over the last month and a half, he's still a decent fantasy player if you're in a pinch.

Weiss notched an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over Nashville, snapping a seven-game scoreless streak.Weiss got off to a hot start in his initial return from injury in November, but has failed to recapture that since separating his shoulder in mid-December. If he can get back on track, he has some fantasy value, but that has not happened in January yet.

He has 10 points in 11 games played this season, leading the Red Wings to a 8-1-2 record during those contests.
