Red Wings F Anthony Mantha out couple of weeks with lower body injury
DETROIT – The struggling Detroit Red Wings now will be without their leading goal scorer for a couple of weeks.
Anthony Mantha, who leads the team with 12 goals this season, suffered a lower body injury during Sunday’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Red Wings announced Tuesday that the injury will keep him out of the lineup for a couple of weeks.
It’s unclear exactly how he got hurt Sunday night.

Mantha missed significant time last season with a hand injury.
Detroit sits firmly at the bottom of the NHL with a 7-16-3 record. The team is on another six-game losing streak.
Up next is the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday in Detroit.
