Detroit Red Wings' Daniel Alfredsson (11) receives high-fives after scoring against the Pittsburgh Penguins during the first period of an NHL hockey game Thursday, March 20, 2014, in Detroit.


Daniel Alfredsson won't be in the lineup Tuesday night when the Detroit Red Wings host the Boston Bruins for Game 3 of their opening round series. 

Preview: Bruins ready for another physical, 'nasty' game

The 41-year-old winger is suffering from an upper-body injury. Joakim Andersson will join Detroit's lineup in Alfredsson's absence. 

It's not clear what Alfredsson's specific injury is, but it could be a back injury which he has been dealing with all season. 

Andersson appeared in 65 games with the Red Wings this season, notching 8 goals and 9 assists. The 25-year-old native of Sweden played in 14 playoff games with Detroit last year, tallying a goal and 4 assists.
