I was at the game. As many have already said, terrible first two periods. I thought Larkin looked a little out of place in the first, but once Blash switched lines in the third, his line was clearly the most dangerous. I think Blash needs to keep Larkin at center. It's clear he is more comfortable there.
I thought Nyquist looked 10x better tonight than he did all preseason. Hoping him and Tatar can get a couple over the next few games to get things going.
Also, the Defense is SORELY missing Danny D. I think having him will help iron out some of the big defensive wrinkles the Wings currently have.
Canes deserved that game, and I felt bad looking at the scoreboard seeing 42 shots to 20, and the Wings up by 2. Anyway, a win is a win!
