Red Wings bullet points ahead of tonight’s game vs. Dallas’s Josh Berenter posted a set of bullet-pointed notes ahead of tonight’s game vs. Dallas (8:30 PM EST on FSD/FS SW/97.1 FM):

Red Wings Storylines

• After earning seven points in his first six games last season, including five goals in the first two contests, Anthony Mantha has had a frustrating start to the 2020-21 campaign, registering just one goal among three points in the first six games.

“It’s not something that I like, to not be involved and help the team,” Mantha said about his slow start. “I’m someone that’s hard on myself and I want to get better and that’s the mentality I’m going in with. I can redeem myself as quick as (Tuesday) night.”

• Despite the 2-4 start, the Red Wings have gotten excellent goaltending from Jonathan Bernier and Thomas Greiss. Detroit’s goalie tandem has combined for a .904 save percentage, which is much improved from the .886 save percentage from Wings goalies last season.

• The Red Wings continue to be without forwards Adam Erne, Robby Fabbri, Sam Gagner and Filip Zadina, as well as defenseman Jon Merrill, due to NHL COVID-19 protocols. Erne and Fabbri have been on the COVID-19 list since January 18, missing four games, while Gagner, Zadina and Merrill have missed two games since being placed on the list on January 22.

  1. Not sure what Covid rules are down in the USA. Normally in Canada it is 14 days but they have let Athletes use only 10.

    Politics I guess, 14 days is a long time to be out of a short season but Health comes 1st. Not sure where Helm is at but he hasn’t played all year, slow start is expected when and if he will return but he would help.

    May the UNDERDOG bite the favorite in the A$$ today!!
