In Red Wings Land
Quite the offensive show last night in Chicago. The final score was Red Wings 8, Blackhawks 6. Your Detroit goal scorers were Thomas Vanek (2), Andreas Athanasiou (2), Anthony Mantha, Dylan Larkin, Darren Helm and Luke Witkowski (!).
How cool would it be if these guys — Larkin, Mantha & Athanasiou — keep scoring and take that next step in their careers when we get to the regular season? They’re no longer the learning kids and the future because the future is here. They’re now the present.
If that happens and they continue to put pucks in the back of the net... maybe that means the Wings could have a chance to be good? That would be awesome and, at the very least, they could be fun to watch.
Andreas Athanasiou has been an absolute terror for the Blackhawks tonight.. Sets up Dylan Larkin for a ripper. pic.twitter.com/QffMpMLnJ2— Kyle M. (@KyleWIIM) September 26, 2018

Around the League
The Red Wings aren’t ranked very highly on this list and that shouldn’t surprise anyone.
