Brendan Perlini Beginning To Mesh With His Linemates

Brendan Perlini looked relieved when he saw his linemate’s shot sink into the opponent’s net.

While fellow newcomer Robby Fabbri showed a hot hand in his debut and ever since, Perlini finally has a point to take into his next game. The Detroit Red Wings host the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday at Little Caesars Arena (7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Detroit) on a five-game points streak.

Perlini earned an assist in Saturday's shootout loss at San Jose when he fed a nice pass to Taro Hirose, whose shot from the slot made it 2-2.

“It was nice to finally get us on the board there,” Perlini said Monday. “Our line, we’ve been snakebitten for a while, so hopefully that kind of breaks it up and we can get going and contribute here.”...

Perlini is the highest draft pick in the Wings’ lineup, taken 12th overall in 2014 (the year the Wings grabbed Dylan Larkin at No. 15). Perlini wasn’t getting a chance in Chicago; the Wings are giving him that opportunity.

“The biggest thing I’ve tried to focus on with him is on himself and on the process of how he’s playing,” coach Jeff Blashill said.

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.
