Notes: Wings expecting to see Pettersson again

Detroit also likely to make a lineup change, switching rookie defensemen

by Dana Wakiji @Dwakiji /

VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks forward Elias Pettersson has been the proverbial straw that stirs the drink for his team this season.

Despite missing 11 games due to injuries, including the last five with a knee issue, Pettersson leads his team in goals with 22, points with 42, plus-minus with +13 (tied with Troy Stecher) and an astounding game-winning goals with seven.

Vancouver native Rasmussen practices but won't play against Canucks

BURNABY, B.C. -- There were many instances during the 2017-18 season when Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist did the right things and did not get appropriately rewarded.

This season Nyquist has a similar approach but is getting better luck.

Notes: Jensen cements his role

Howard encouraged by young Red Wings' play; Larkin happy for his cousin

by Arthur J. Regner @ArthurJRegner /

DETROIT -- Red Wings defenseman Nick Jensen has always had Jeff Blashill in his corner.

Perhaps it dates back to when Blashill coached Jensen in Grand Rapids from 2013-14 through 2014-15, but the Detroit bench boss has always admired Jensen's competitive spirit and his skating ability.

Tweet from @DetroitRedWings: Coach Blashill wraps up today's practice leading into our final road trip before the #NHLAllStar break and bye week. #RedWings

But after two periods of looking lethargic and trailing the Ducks, 1-0, the Red Wings appeared to be following a familiar path, not playing poorly, but not playing well enough to win.
