Time For Some Road Wins

11/06/2022 at 10:37am EST

from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,

Turning in another impressive home-ice performance, the Detroit Red Wings were shutting out the New York Islanders 3-0 on Saturday at Little Caesars Arena. They’re now 5-1-1 on home ice during the 2022-23 NHL season.

Now if only they could figure how to put such efforts into a suticase and take them on the plane as they were heading to New York. The Red Wings and New York Rangers will be facing off Sunday at 5 p.m. ET on the ice at Madison Square Garden.

It’s not merely that the Red Wings are showing a poor road record. That they are, going 1-2-1 away from home this season. It’s how they are performing in those away contests – especially the most recent ones – that is of utmost concern to coach Derek Lalonde.

On their last road trip, the Red Wings were taking an 8-3 shellacking at the hands of the Buffalo Sabres. Pror to that, they were absorbing a 5-1 smackdown in Boston from the Bruins. That’s an 0-2 record in the standing and a 13-4 deficit in the goals column.


Below find some Grand Rapids talk...

Defenseman Simon Edvinsson’s play in Grand Rapids receives plenty of scrutiny from the Detroit Red Wings and their fans. Likewise, Jonatan Berggren’s strong start makes fans wonder when he will be called up. But left wing prospect Cross Hanas deserves as much attention as both of those prospects.

In his first professional season, Hans has put up five goals and two assists for seven points in his first 10 games for the Grand Rapids Griffins.

The Texas native scored the Griffins in their 4-1 road loss to Rockford IceHogs Saturday.The Griffins have a video of the goal on their website:

The 2020 second-round pick (No. 55) has 18 shots on goal over those 10 games. Hanas managed 86 points in 63 games for the Western Hockey League’s Portland Winterhawks last season.
