Detroit Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill has his doubts when it comes to the potential of Henrik Zetterberg suiting up this season, uncertain that the 37-year old will be healthy enough to do so and admitting that his status is now in the air. "He was sticking up for (teammate Dylan) Larkin in that case, who got his head run against the boards".

"He's been playing excellent", Blashill said after the morning skate prior to the Red Wings hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday (7:30 p.m. ET; FS-D, SUN, NHL.TV).

Even before he played his first game of the season, Brazdeikis was compared to Wagner and it goes much further than the fact he wears the same No. 13 jersey that Wagner wore while at MI.

Nathan MacKinnon had a goal and an assist in the win.

In 27 games with the Red Wings this season, Mantha has scored nine goals while dishing out five assists. I know this, he'd do it again.

"We want to make sure we're sticking up for each other". Otherwise you're never winning. "That's just the reality of it".

The NHL has cracked down on Red Wings forward Tyler Bertuzzi following an incident in Sunday's game against the Avalanche.

It is important to note that when the DoPS announced the hearing they did not say he was offered an in-person hearing, meaning Bertuzzi cannot be suspended for more than five games if he is suspended at all. "It was pretty black and white, I think".
