Videos- Recap Of Last Night's OT Loss To The LA Kings

10/18/2022 at 7:36am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Just when it appeared all was lost, Dylan Larkin raced down the ice, dove and knocked the puck off Victor Arvidsson’s stick before he could deposit it into an empty net on a breakaway.

That hustle earned the Detroit Red Wings a point Monday and Larkin some praise from his new coach following a 5-4 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings at Little Caesars Arena.

“Awesome,” Derek Lalonde said. “It was an amazing play. Never gave up on it. It’s a good message to everyone.”


from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

Make no mistake about this game — this was a good point for the Red Wings. It gives them five points out of six in their first three games this season and builds their confidence going into Friday’s game in Chicago....

“We trust every line, every line has produced some offense,” Lalonde said. “We’re getting it from our defense. That’s good. You talk about depth. We have basically three of our top six forwards out in (Tyler) Bertuzzi, (Jakub) Vrana and (Robby) Fabbri, and we still have a deep lineup with offense throughout and that’s a really good sign. You got to have depth. We’re experiencing it right now and the depth came through tonight.”

The Detroit players believe they have four lines that can score and that is crucial.

“Obviously you need depth scoring to go deep into any season or playoff, so it’s good to see early on. Obviously everybody’s gonna keep adding to our game,” Perron said. “We’re starting to play the right way more and more and it was great to see that fight in the third period to get that one back and get a big point.”




from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,

This past weekend, Biakabutuka was back on the ice. He’s now an Islander. No, not those Islanders. He didn’t land on Long Island. Biakabutuka is playing with his junior club, the Charlottetown Islanders of the QMJHL, as an overager...

Have we seen the last of Biakabutuka in Red Wings colors? The fact that he’s making the choice for another year of junior rather than turning pro with the Wolves leaves open the possbility that he could still have an NHL future.



Wasn't he offered an AHL contract following the prospect tourney? 


That's the Wolves contract mentioned in the article. Guess he didn't sign it and went back to the Q (as mentioned in the article). 


So my 9-0 prediction is only partially sullied... 8-0-1 now?

Does that still count?


I blame Gabe for the crash of the site last night, his sudden appearance caused such an unexpected uproar.


from Patrick Williams of TheAHL,

And he is an American Hockey League defenseman, a job that can test the confidence of 10-year pros.

But he is in no rush, and neither are the Detroit Red Wings.

The Red Wings hope that he is a future fixture on their blue line for years, which is precisely why they have him with the Grand Rapids Griffins this season. Edvinsson went to the Red Wings as the sixth overall selection in the 2021 National Hockey League Draft.

“I want to bring my game to Detroit,” Edvinsson said, “and I feel like I can start [in Grand Rapids] and develop my game here.”



we're all aware KK is going through growing pains, but i gotta tell ya paul, this recap i woke up to this am is outstanding, well done.


Thanks and it actually makes sense to do it in the morning instead of getting bits and pieces at night.  I may just have to re-think the post-game stuff at night.


Remember when a few people were wondering about Perron? Pepperidge Farm remembers. 


I questioned his play in the first two games (and I'm still disappointed in Copp's play so far). But Perron looked like the guy I remember from the Blues last night. He looked like he was playing smarter and his shot was far more controlled. It's really good to see.


Picking up a point in that game felt like a win....
