Detroit Red Wings forward Darren Helm will miss the rest of this week's games, but overall, the news is good.

General manager Ken Holland told the Free Press that Helm, who has missed four of five games with a sore back, underwent a second MRI exam today.

"There's no structural damage," Holland said. "It's just a re-aggravation of an old injury. There's a little inflammation, so he's going to get an anti-inflammatory and take a few days off."
