Red Wings vs Avalanche: Updates, Lines
Thomas Greiss is first off the ice for Detroit this morning. #LGRW— Daniella Bruce (@daniellabruce_) February 23, 2022
#RedWings Blashill said Larkin, who skated this morning, will be a game-time decision. Veleno called up just in case. Namestnikov cleared to play.— Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive) February 23, 2022
Namestnikov didn’t skate this morning but he’s cleared to play and according to Max Bultman is expected to play. Veleno’s call-up solves the issue of the Wings being forced to skate 11/7 if one of Larkin or Namestnikov can’t go.
Nathan MacKinnon is dealing with a lower-body issue that's not getting better. He's out tonight. They figure now is a good time with not many off days coming up.— Peter Baugh (@Peter_Baugh) February 23, 2022
Linesemen tonight breathe a sigh of relief.
The Avs have their division basically wrapped up and they’re likely pulling the chut a little bit. No need to risk MacKinnon against Detroit.
