In Red Wings Land

Detroit Red Wings’ top line begin season showing promise in 5-3 win over Predators | Freep

Top of the line

Bertuzzi earned the first goal of the season at 10:29 when he one-timed a pretty pass from Larkin, sending the puck top shelf. Mantha made it 2-0 on a goal that demonstrated what a power forward he can be — he carried the puck to the net, slicing through two defenders without losing the puck. Larkin nearly made it 3-0, but his shot went off the far goal post. He made it 3-2 early in the third period, blasting a one-timer from the high slot off a pass from Mantha.

The Red Wings should just never take Dylan Larkin, Tyler Bertuzzi and Anthony Mantha off the ice.

Down On The Farm

So the Red Wings win the Stanley Cup and the Griffins win the Calder Cup this season?

Sounds about right to me.
