Preview: Red Wings host Flames to wrap up season-opening homestand

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.

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."
