A mystery began brewing on Thursday when Team Sweden, on a day off after Wednesday's 4-2 win over Czech Republic, showed up for practice and their team picture. Missing from the photo op was Henrik Zetterberg, the Swedish captain who also wears the C in Detroit.

Of course the immediate speculation shot toward an injury and that speculation was on the right track. Zetterberg was missing from the festivities because he was ailing. The good news for Sweden is that at least it doesn't sound too bad.
