Detroit Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg remains sidelined with a second-degree MCL sprain in his left knee, but he took a tender first step today and skated for about 15 minutes.

"It was fun to be out there, feel the puck again," Zetterberg said. "I didn't do any serious stuff -- just go out and stickhandle a little bit, lob some shots, and that's about it."

Zetterberg's injury normally takes three weeks to heal, and it only has been a week since he got hurt April 6 at Carolina.

As long as things are going well for the Wings in their first-round series against Phoenix -- they won Game 1, 4-2, on Wednesday -- Zetterberg will remain on the sideline.
