The Nasty Cough shorty really got the Wings blood circulating.
Both Larkin goals off amazing passes. That is a good win. Nice job pulling one out of almost nothing.

Dylan sure knows how to pilot this ship.  He is a great Captain, as he goes so goes the team.  For a young guy he has my admiration.

I thought many exhibition games have more action than the first 50 minutes of this game. Very nice forechecking and pass by Fabbri on a game tying goal and there was only 1 team on the ice in OT, that was nice.

Vladdie def upping his trade value! I’d love to find a way to keep him, tho. Or get him back next season!

I like the idea of moving Bert to 2nd line, and Vladdy up, at least long enough to see if we can get 2 lines going. So far so good.
