A Win Needed

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

If ever the Wings needed a victory, now would be one time.

"Whether they're coming from the East Coast, West Coast or Florida, we just need to play good hockey and take care of our own business," Blashill said.

The four-game winless streak has sapped optimism from a promising start.

"It goes so quick," forward Pius Suter said. "One week ago, completely different situation. You just remind yourself of the good games."

Among the issues:

- Dylan Larkin's murky status: Larkin has been out of the lineup for "personal reasons" since Monday. Coach Jeff Blashill said after Friday's practice there was "no further update as of right now," and wouldn't speculate as to when Larkin would return.

The Wings haven't disclosed anything other than "personal reasons" for Larkin's absence. Blashill said Friday the Wings support Larkin.

"He's somebody we all care tons about and we'll continue to care tons about him," Blashill said. "Certainly I don't want to get into it too deep, because that's not fair. So our guys care a ton about him and certainly that continues."
