Preview: Red Wings begin first road trip of season Saturday at Montreal

2021 Stanley Cup runners-up still searching for first win

by Brett McWethy @DetroitRedWings / DetroitRedWings.com

DETROIT -- Jeff Blashill prefers to call it urgency vs. desperation. However it is framed, he knows his team is in for a battle when the Detroit Red Wings play their first road game of the season in Montreal.

After a four-game homestand to begin the 2021-22 campaign, Detroit heads to the Bell Centre for a 7 p.m. puck drop against the Canadiens on Saturday night (Bally Sports Detroit, Red Wings Radio Network). It marks the Red Wings' first Original Six matchup of the season, and their first showdown in Canada since Feb. 29, 2020.

Detroit has claimed five of six possible points in first three games of 2021-22 season

by Brett McWethy @DetroitRedWings / DetroitRedWings.com

DETROIT -- Considering what he was up against, things are currently working out about as well as they could for Tyler Bertuzzi.

The Detroit Red Wings' gritty winger was limited to just nine games in the shortened 2020-21 season, and underwent major back surgery in April. Getting back on the ice in a competitive environment, let alone picking up where he left off as a cornerstone of Detroit's rebuild, was a lot to ask. There was plenty of uncertainty surrounding the level of production the Red Wings would receive from Bertuzzi, especially early in the season.

Heading into the final game of Detroit's season-opening homestand, Bertuzzi has more than risen to the occasion.

Rookie forward playing with 'maturity beyond his years,' Blashill says

by Nicholas J. Cotsonika @cotsonika / NHL.com Columnist

DETROIT -- Lucas Raymond skated hard into the offensive zone, took a pass from center Dylan Larkin in the right circle and fired a wrist shot from the face-off dot past the outstretched stick of a defenseman. The puck whizzed past the goalie's glove and into the upper right corner of the net, and there it was, Raymond's first NHL goal.

Preview: Larkin, Red Wings set to entertain Blue Jackets on Tuesday night

Detroit has picked up three points in first two home games to open 2021-22 season

by Brett McWethy @DetroitRedWings / DetroitRedWings.com

DETROIT -- One thing was made clear during Detroit Red Wings captain Dylan Larkin's media session ahead of Tuesday's game against visiting Columbus: he's ready to move on from the events of last Thursday's Home Opener and Saturday's ensuing suspension, and simply get back to leading his team.

Larkin discussed for the first time Mathieu Joseph's hit and the events that followed in the season opener against Tampa Bay (Oct. 14), while also acknowledging his own wrongdoing. He said the one-game suspension was "warranted."

Fabbri could center top line as Larkin serves one-game suspension on Saturday

by DetroitRedWings.com @DetroitRedWings

The mood at Detroit Red Wings practice on Friday was reflective of the night before. Some mix of feelings between knowing the team played well in Thursday's 7-6 overtime loss against the Tampa Bay Lightning, knowing they had blown a three-goal lead in the final minutes, and anger about the uncertain status of captain Dylan Larkin.

Larkin was ejected from Thursday's game after taking a match penalty by punching Mathieu Joseph in retaliation for a hit along the boards. The same kind of hit that ended Larkin's 2020-21 season at the hands of Jamie Benn, put him in the hospital for a night and a neck collar for eight weeks. After a disciplinary hearing Friday afternoon, Larkin was given a one-game suspension by the NHL.

Six prospects to watch in Grand Rapids

Veleno, Berggren headline roster for Griffins

by Ethan Sears @ethan_sears / DetroitRedWings.com

The Grand Rapids Griffins open their season on Friday night, and the Red Wings will be watching with interest.

One of the things about being a team built around youth: your AHL affiliate holds outsize importance.

When the Griffins drop the puck against the Rockford IceHogs at 7 p.m. on Friday, they'll do so with a roster that includes a number of players that could play for the Red Wings - either this year or further down the line. After a heated competition for roster spots during training camp, this group will be eager to prove themselves and earn call-ups to Detroit as soon as possible.
