THE BIG MATCHUP

Jacob Trouba vs Dylan Larkin

It’s a battle of University of Michigan Wolverines alumni, as one half of the Jets shutdown pairing looks to try and minimize the production of the Red Wings top scorer, who has 18 goals and 41 points in 45 games. Trouba recorded five points during his two prior home games, so he’s doing much more than just check this season.

Impressive rookie

The Red Wings feature a smooth-skating rookie defenceman in 2017 first-rounder Dennis Cholowski. Cholowski is among the rookie leaders on the back end with six goals and 15 points in 43 games while averaging nearly 19 minutes of ice time per game. The Red Wings should also get a boost with the return of Mike Green, who is back after missing 13 games with a foot injury. The Red Wings went 2-8-3 without Green in the lineup and he has 16 points in 23 games.

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.
