Preparing For The Return Of Jakub Vrana

03/07/2022 at 7:55am EST

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

After seven straight games against teams fighting for playoff positioning, the last-place Arizona Coyotes are next on the slate, Tuesday at Little Caesars Arena. The Wings were off Sunday, giving them a chance to refresh after enduring back-to-back losses in Florida.

The Wings could get some reinforcement from Jakub Vrana as soon as Tuesday. The forward hasn’t played all season after undergoing shoulder surgery in October. (Anthony Mantha, who went to the Capitals in the trade, underwent shoulder surgery in November and returned to action March 3). Vrana provided an immediate boost last season, scoring in his debut and producing at a point-per-game clip in 11 appearances.

The Wings need to improve defensively, but they’d take pressure off themselves if they could score a little more.

“That’s the balance,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “ You have to be able to be good offensively while you’re good defensively.”

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.
