Focus On The Power Play In A Detroit Loss Last Night

10/05/2021 at 3:31am EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Lucas Raymond is making it difficult for the Red Wings to keep him off the opening-night roster next week.

The rookie continued his torrid pace Monday in the exhibition season with a goal and assist — and many more good plays — in the Wings' 6-4 loss to Chicago.

The Wings scored all four of their goals on the power play — which was another eye-popping result in an entertaining pre-season game.

But it was Raymond's exciting ability that will make the Wings' decision so difficult in the days ahead — whether to keep him on the NHL roster, or send him to Grand Rapids for more seasoning.

"We don't have to make that decision yet," coach Jeff Blashill said. "He did a good job tonight. He's played good in the games so far, and that's all he can do, play good hockey.

"He has a mature game for a young guy. Obviously he has talent. Let's keep evaluating."

If the preseason is any indication, the Detroit Red Wings might have discovered a formula for success to a power play that has struggled badly in recent years.

The Red Wings scored four power-play goals Monday in a 6-4 exhibition loss to the Chicago Blackhawks at Little Caesars Arena.

Bobby Ryan, Moritz Seider, Robby Fabbri and Lucas Raymond each had a goal and an assist for Detroit (3-2-0)
