Detroit Red Wings keep winning; why it matters who’s leading the way | Freep
What’s been especially encouraging the last 10 games is the contribution from the 25-and-under crowd. Dylan Larkin has continued to play well and packed 12 points into the stretch. Anthony Mantha has stirred after a slow start and come through with five goals among six points. Rookie Michael Rasmussen has gained confidence as he’s knocked in five goals among six points. Tyler Bertuzzi and Andreas Athanasiou each have three goals and three assists during the 10 games.
This is good.
