My Detroit Sports: #MyRedWings Weekly #7

Before heading into All-Star Weekend, the Wings made a stop in New Jersey before hosting the Flyers and longtime rival, Chicago Blackhawks at Little Caesars Arena.

Petr Mrazek continues to impress, as of late. Last Monday, Mrazek his 3rd shutout of the season, blanking the Devils with 37 saves. This was his 2nd consecutive shutout of the season, as well. Tyler Bertuzzi, David Booth and Dylan Larkin recorded a goal each in the win. Andreas Athanasiou chipped in with a pair of assists.

Detroit returned home the next night to host the Philadelphia Flyers. Jonathan Ericsson opened up the scoring with an assist from Luke Glendening to put the Wings ahead in the 1st period. The 2nd period belonged to the Flyers though as Andrew MacDonald and Jakub Voracek scored a goal each, giving Philly the 2-1 lead. The game looked to be in the bag for the Flyers until Frans Nielsen gave the Wings hope just past the midway point in the 3rd period with a goal in regulation. Glendening recording his 2nd assist of the night. Philadelphia would slam the door on Detroit’s comeback victory, as Travis Konecny opened up with the game-winner, just 27 seconds into overtime. The Flyers have won 8 of their last 9 games.

 

Dylan Larkin made a stop at the North American International Auto Show.

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher, Matt Boyd and 2018 Baseball Hall of Fame inductee, Jack Morris visited Little Caesars Arena as part of the Detroit Tigers caravan.

 

After blanking the Blackhawks, 4-0 at the United Center a week prior, Chicago looked to get retribution Thursday night at LCA. The Hawks from the Windy City would do just that, defeating the Wings 5-1. Alex DeBrincat led the way with a hat trick on the night. This was his 2nd hat trick of the season as the other came from Chicago’s 7-3 victory over Anaheim on November 27th. DeBrincat hails from the suburbs of Detroit.

Anthony Duclair and Vinnie Hinostroza would add a goal each in the 1st period in the Blackhawks win. Anthony Mantha recorded Detroit’s lone goal in the loss.

Mike Green represented the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL All-Star Game last weekend, who contributed with an assist in their game against the Metropolitan All-Stars to give the Atlantic All-Stars the win to advance in the final. Despite the Atlantic All-Stars 5-2 loss to the Pacific, Green would shine, scoring both Atlantics goals in Tampa.

Green and the Red Wings look to capitalize on some of that All-Star magic as they host the San Jose Sharks tonight at Little Caesars Arena. The puck drops at 8PM.
