The holidays are here, and it's time to check in on where the Detroit Red Wings are at the break!
Tune in as we open by discussing Detroit's loss against the Washington Capitals, including a strong start from the likes of Perron & Berggren, Husso's solid showing in a loss, & the Red Wings selling out to protect Gordie Howe's goal total against Alexander Ovechkin (5:15). Next, Detroit's massive win over the Tampa Bay Lightning at the LCA, including a fantastic performance from an injured Dylan Larkin, Michael Rasmussen thriving on the wing, David Perron, Olli Maatta, Moritz Seider with strong games, Seider's hit on Hagel & scrum with Sergachev, & how important the win was heading into the break (13:15).
We check in with Max Bultman of The Athletic Detroit to take measure of Steve Yzerman's squad, what might happen to Dylan Larkin & Tyler Bertuzzi at the trade deadline, whether Derek Lalonde can keep the team fighting for a playoff spot, the progression of Lucas Raymond & Moritz Seider, & lots more (31:05).
Also, Jakub Vrana is getting closer to returning & Detroit gets a break in scheduling with a postponed game against Ottawa (1:06:55), Givani Smith was traded to the Florida Panthers (1:10:50), Filip Hronek is gaining more recognition (1:13:20), & lots more - enjoy!
From our family to yours: have a safe & happy holiday season!
