Video- Game Thoughts And Highlights

11/25/2021 at 3:20am EST

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

Alex Nedeljkovic received his first back-to-back starts with the Detroit Red Wings and responded with a brilliant performance in a 3-2 win against the St. Louis Blues. The Red Wings are 9-9-3 overall, but 6-2-2 at Little Caesars Arena

Staking a Claim
The Red Wings said from the beginning they would use a tandem approach in net unless either Alex Nedeljkovic or Thomas Greiss showed they deserved to be the starter. This one game isn’t enough to change Detroit’s plans.

But his 35-save performance might further establish Nedeljkovic as the favorite to emerge as the No. 1. He is the first to play two consecutive games.

This game will stick with fans and coaches because Nedeljkovic was sometimes spectacular, particularly in the third period. His athleticism allowed him to stretch post to post to make big saves. In his back-to-back outings, he stopped 62 of 66 shots.

Larkin Carrying the Flag
Dylan Larkin scored his 10th goal of the season, one more than he scored last season in 44 games. He now has 18 points in 17 games. More importantly, Larkin is playing with authority.

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.
