Red Wings at Blue Jackets: GDU, Lineups, Keys to the Game

Winging It In Motown

Game Day Updates

Not even a “gameday” update, but Dylan Larkin’s best bud switching agents before he goes into next season and then becomes a free agent is interesting to me at least.

This article will post before we know fully whether Smith will still be on the Taxi Squad at gametime, but I don’t know why they would have called him up otherwise so I’m penciling him into the lineup (on a line based on my best guess) and you can yell at me later when I’m wrong.

1. Try not to embarrass the sport

Seems pretty easy to not do, but this week has been a challenge all over hockey

2. Maybe just play without a goalie

I’m very torn because I always want to see the Wings play well, but I very much want them to lose the last two games of the season because I don’t think these last games are as important for development of a team missing so many pieces as it is for draft lottery positioning.

3. Nope, just two keys. That’s it
