Red Wings Review Nov. 21-27, 2022

Game Review – Game 1, W 3-0 vs Nashville, Game 2, SOW 4-3 vs Arizona

Talking Hockey – The win streak persisted through the week. Granted, the Detroit Red Wings played two struggling teams with fledgling hopes of making the playoffs. Husso looked solid against the Nashville Predators, securing his, league leading, third shutout of the season.

Week Ahead – Detroit plays four times this week. The homestand continues with games at home against Toronto (Monday), Buffalo (Wednesday) and Las Vegas (Saturday), before heading out on Sunday to play Columbus for their first game on the road in over two weeks.

Broken Wings – Robby Fabbri (Knee) returning January, Jakub Vrana (Player Assistance Program), Filip Zadina (Lower Body) Expected to return in January, Matt Luff (Upper Body) expected return January, Elmer Soderblom (undisclosed) listed week-to-week, Gustave Lindstrom (lower body) week-to-week.

Hot Wings – Filip Hronek – Hronek enters this week on a four-game goal streak and managed to put up multiple point games in both games this week. Ville Husso- Husso stopped 47 of 50 shots faced this week, closing out a shutout on Wednesday to take the NHL lead for shutouts on the season.

Frozen Wings – The Bottom Six – Michael Rasmussen picked up an empty-net goal on Wednesday, but otherwise the bottom two lines for Detroit have been famine for the last two weeks. While the top lines have been sustained by the defense in scoring, more production is needed from the bottom six to sustain the win streak.

In Play! Player of the Week – Ville Husso – Husso persevered in a goalie battle on Wednesday and then kept Detroit ahead on Friday before. He’s supplanted the 1A/1B situation in goal and pushed Alex Nedeljkovic to a pure backup situation with his play the last few weeks.
