from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

"These young guys are pushing, it's just going to push everyone to be better," Larkin said. "There's opportunity there for jobs. Guys understand there's minutes and power-play time and these young guys are pushing. I'm excited about it. It's definitely in the back of my mind a little bit that these guys are coming and they're players and they're only going to help us. It wouldn't surprise me by Day 1 we have some fresh faces. They're energized, they're skilled and they can play the game.

"It could be the first time I'm not the youngest guy on the team. That's why I'm growing out this beard."

Cholowski assisted on two goals, including Rasmussen's. Cholowski's shot hit the post. Larkin corralled the rebound and passed to Rasmussen at the net-front for an easy tap-in, just one second after a power play expired.

Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said Rasmussen started slowly but got better as the game progressed.

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.
