The Detroit Red Wings will be without center Pavel Datsyuk when they visit the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday due to a possible concussion.

Datsyuk did not make the trip to Buffalo after being elbowed in the jaw by defenseman Jared Cowen with 7:48 remaining in the Ottawa Senators' 4-2 victory Saturday at Joe Louis Arena. No penalty was called on the play. Datsyuk was shaken up momentarily but got up and played three more shifts. His last shift, however, lasted only 12 seconds, and he did not play in the final 1:51.
