Quick Recap- Detroit/Chicago

Fun for everyone wearing red tonight.

The Detroit Red Wings defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1.

Probably the most enjoyable Detroit game I've watched in a few years.

Michael Rasmussen continues to impress, he's looking more like Pete Mahovlich and Keith Primeau in their post-Detroit years.  We've watche him go from that look of a deer in the headlights to a very motivated player.

Most impressive, the pressure put on by Detroit in the 3rd period and their overall defensive gams.

I'll leave the breakdown of the game to you.

I agree Pablo, it was fun to watch, and happy for the boys to show some good offensive moves.

Strong case for blashill to be resigned given the last month or 2 of play.  PK was mentioned.  Huge improvement.  Team defense.  I wouldn’t be surprised.

When vrana was with Larkin and Zadina it was really nice to watch. A lot of speed and sneaky backchecking

That’s one thing I noticed about Vrana: He wasn’t afraid to back check.
