from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

“He’s gotten better game by game,” coach Jeff Blashill said earlier in the week. “He’s gotten more and more confident, making plays, finding ways to create space.

“It’s a real positive step in the right direction, and certainly good for our organization.”...

“I feel pretty good, I feel confident,” Zadina said. “It’s probably why I’m playing way better than I played my first game. (I) feel great with the puck, confident, and creating chances for my teammates.”

The Wings will not have forward Dylan Larkin (neck strain) Thursday, as Larkin misses his fifth consecutive game. The Wings aren’t planning on getting Larkin into the lineup until he has full-motion and is pain-free.

Already down one defenseman — Mike Green, who is out for the remainder of the season with a virus — the Wings will not have Jonathan Ericsson (lower body), either, against Tampa.

Ericsson appeared to twist, or sprain, his right knee Tuesday in Montreal in a collision along the boards.

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.
