A Scoring Spree From The Detroit Red Wings

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

So, of course, with many of the Red Wings top offensive players missing due to injuries, the Wings explode for seven goals Thursday and win.

And Jakub Vrana got most of them.

The newly acquired Vrana was spectacular with four goals, as the Wings defeated Dallas 7-3, the seven goals a season-high for the Wings.

It's the Wings' first victory over Dallas in the four-game series this week, which concludes Saturday at Little Caesars Arena.

This, despite the fact the Stars desperately needed this game in a playoff chase while the Wings are decimated with injuries and trying to escape last place in the Central Division.

But the Wings had Vrana, and that was a big checkmark on their side.

"He is fast and he can shoot it, and those two things are undeniable," coach Jeff Blashill said. "Even tonight, the goals were goal scorer's goals, a lot of them. The way he finished, when you have the ability to finish, it can really alter the game."...

"The locker room, it was nice, it felt great in there," said Vrana of the celebration after the game. "There are a great group of guys here. We've been missing some big key guys in the lineup and it's great to see the guys coming in, stepping up and playing great games and get the win.

"We're trying to create some momentum."
