Center Of Attention

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

When you went to sleep late Monday night, Andreas Athanasiou scored his 29th goal and Dylan Larkin his 28th, as the Red Wings out-played and defeated the playoff-bound San Jose Sharks 3-2.

With six games remaining on the schedule, and the way those two young forwards are playing, you have to like their chances of getting to 30.

The two centers — Athanasiou was switched to position around the trade deadline and is becoming increasingly comfortable — were particularly effective in the last two victories over playoffs teams Vegas, and Monday, the Sharks.

“The last two games, especially, they’ve both been super dangerous,” coach Jeff Blashill told DetroitRedWings.com. “Larks took a little bit coming back from the injury but now he’s really going. He’s super dangerous with the puck.

“Having both of them at center, when they get the puck in the middle of the ice, they’re dynamic. And they can skate away from you and they can push our pace. Those two have been a real bright spot the last bit.”

About Abel to Yzerman

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.
