THE BIG MATCHUP
Colin White versus Dylan Larkin: With Matt Duchene injured, White has moved into the role of the club’s top centre. His line didn’t do a whole lot against the Predators on Tuesday in Nashville. Of all the young players, White has shown the most progress and, in many ways, the most consistency. He has been strong at both ends of the ice. Larkin has been a bright spot for a Detroit team that’s rebuilding and he has to be shut down.
