Detroit Red Wings Suffer Loss to Their Lineup

Red Wings lose forward

The Detroit Red Wings dropped their second straight game on Saturday to the Florida Panthers 4-0. It was a very chippy and physical game, that had a playoff-like atmosphere and very well could be a first-round matchup in the Stanley Cup playoffs. That wasn’t the only loss the Red Wings suffered as their captain Dylan Larkin went down the tunnel after a tangle with Brandon Montour during Saturday’s game. Today Red Wings Head Coach Derek LaLonde said that Larkin will be out for two weeks with a lower-body injury.

Dylan Larkin By The Numbers

Larkin was having a fantastic season playing in 55 games and he had 54 points on 26 goals and 28 assists. He leads the Red Wings in points, and goals and is second on the team in assists. He is also 25th in the league in goals and 45th in points. He has 21 power-play points coming on ten goals and 11 assists; he is tied for the team lead in power-play goals and is third in power-play assists on the team and he is tied for 39th in the league in power-play points. Larkin was having one of his best offensive seasons and was finding success playing with a variety of different players on his line such as Patrick Kane, Alex DeBrincat, Michael Rasmussen, Lucas Raymond, David Perron, Robby Fabbri, and Joe Veleno.

Bottom Line: Rough Stretch Ahead

With Larkin out for two weeks, LaLonde said they will likely not call anyone up from Grand Rapids and will have Klim Kostin slide back into the lineup or go with an 11-forward and seven-defenseman lineup. Larkin will miss matchups against the Colorado Avalanche, Arizona Coyotes twice, Vegas Golden Knights, Buffalo Sabres twice, and the Pittsburgh Penguins. That’s assuming he’ll return by March 19th when they play the Columbus Blue Jackets. It’ll be interesting to see when starts skating again and will be something to monitor over the next week and a half.
