Red Wings vs. Rangers: Gameday Updates, Lineups, Keys to the Game

Gameday Updates

Vrana is on tonight’s roster, which would appear to indicate yesterday’s reported reassignment to Grand Rapids was just a formality to reduce his number of days on the active roster.

Keys to the Game

  • Have fun, play loose: It’s been fun as hell to watch the team slowly creep into the playoff conversation. Don’t think for a second it’s not fun as hell for the players either. This group of Red Wings haven’t had something tangible to play for this late in the season in quite some time, and it’s starting to translate to more free-flowing, natural on-ice performances for the team./
