Larsson will play. Dahlin will not play. Lazar still being tested today and is questionable. They’ll warm up with 13 forwards. Bogosian will he scratched.— Joe Yerdon (@JoeYerdon) February 6, 2020
Don’t worry, folks, we’re working hard to get the names of all the people who took the option to not skate and we’re writing a sternly-worded letter about rest, recuperation, free time and how all that’s bullshit because THEY OWE US.
Anders and Johanna Lindstrom, parents of #RedWings Gustav, arrived in Buffalo at 6 pm last night and are at the optional morning skate ahead of their son’s NHL debut: “We wouldn’t miss it for the world,” Anders said.— Dana Wakiji (@Dwakiji) February 6, 2020

Keys to the Game
Maybe try to score a goal
I dunno; it’s just that these last two shutouts haven’t been as much fun to watch. Goal-scoring isn’t really as hard as y’all are making it look of late. The little black rubber piece goes behind the big doofus wearing a mattress under his shirt.
In trying to score a goal, don’t give up too many
These things tend to happen in waves for the Wings where they either can’t score but can (kinda) defend or they can (kinda) score but they can’t defend. I may be asking for the world, but scoring AND defending in one game? How about a little, as a treat?
Shut down Jack Eichel
Not any more important to winning than anything else, but I don’t like him so I want to see him erased from this game.
