The Red Wings continue to intrigue in these opening days of the regular season, and possibly no more than Wednesday in Washington.

Dylan Larkin capped a Red Wings rally in overtime with a 3-2 victory over the Capitals.

In overtime, Lucas Raymond carried the puck through the zone and dished it to Larkin near the dot. Larkin wristed a shot past goaltender Vitek Vanecek, Larkin's third goal, and sending the Wings to an impressive victory.

And, again, that was rookies Raymond and Moritz Seider drawing assists during three-on-three overtime on the game-winning goal.

"They're important for growth but that's not why we had them out there," said coach Jeff Blashill of having his two rookies on the ice with Larkin. "We think they give us a chance to make a real good hockey play."

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
