Rasmussen suffered a lower-body injury during the first period of the Red Wings' 3-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night. The injury occurred while he was blocking a shot by Lightning player Zach Bogosian. It is a big loss to the Red Wings as Rasmussen was in the middle of one of his best seasons, maybe not by the numbers, but by his production on the ice where he's been a force this season.

Rasmussen's presence has been missed over the last three games, a big body player in front of the net, which made it hard on the opposing goalie.
