That didn’t take long.
Larkin twisted around the back of the net as two Hurricanes pursued with the score 1-1 in the third period. Heading to his left he swung a back-handed shot toward the goal and the puck bounced off two Hurricanes and into the net past former Wings goalie Petr Mrazek.
He was named the captain Wednesday ahead of the Wings’ season opener. He entered the season with 107 goals and 159 assists in 390 games since being drafted No. 15 overall in 2014.
The Wings were in search of their first win of the year on Saturday, after suffering a 3-0 defeat in the season opener.
Larkin got a “real” goal a little latter, putting in an empty-netter with 1:56 remaining to seal the 4-2 win.
