Some highlights of the Detroit Red Wings’ 5-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks Tuesday in their preseason opener at Little Caesars Arena:

Rasmussen’s net presence on power play

Michael Rasmussen snapped a 3-3 tie by scoring from the net front on the power play with 4:37 remaining in the third period.

“I think he put some weight on, gained some strength this summer,” Luke Glendening said. “I think he’s a little more confident. He looks good.

“To score goals in this league, that’s where you got be (net front). If he can be great there, that’s good for us.”

Said Rasmussen: “I think I’m stronger on the puck and I’m just stronger with my skating.”

Rasmussen looks forward to playing center, his natural position, this season after playing almost exclusively at wing in 62 games as a rookie with the Red Wings. He is competing for a roster spot because he can be assigned to the AHL Grand Rapids Griffins this season.

“Just way more skating (at center),” Rasmussen said. “I need to get my body up and down the ice a little bit different than wing. Just getting up and down and you got to play as the third D-man pretty much in the zone.”
