Post-practice Tweets: Hronek’s sick (non-COVID), Nedeljkovic loses a bet

MLive’s Ansar Khan reported that Filip Hronek did not participate in Monday’s Red Wings practice at Little Caesars Arena.

With the Wings slated to play three times this week–in Boston on Tuesday, at home vs. Seattle on Wednesday, and at home vs. the Islanders, COVID protocols working out, on Saturday…

The Wings need all hands on deck as November’s 14-game schedule gives way to December’s 13-game schedule (and, in other words, it doesn’t get any easier from here schedule-wise, though the schedule’s game-spacing is a little less brutal).

After a very lengthy practice, and some shenanigans…

Friendly locker room bet paid off between Ohio native (good sport) @alexned_ and @Dylanlarkin39. 👍#GoBlue x #LGRW pic.twitter.com/fBaLX9eoIv— Detroit Red Wings (@DetroitRedWings) November 29, 2021

The Red Wings spoke with the media:

Filip Hronek missed todays practice with a non-Covid illness. Jeff Blashill said he anticipates Hronek will be available tomorrow in Boston. #LGRW— Daniella Bruce (@daniellabruce_) November 29, 2021

I don’t know how this would work, practically speaking, but the fact that Brad Marchand might be suspended for tomorrow’s game due to a slew foot helps:

Coach Blashill when asked how to improve their road record, “Bring our crowd with us.” #LGRW @DetroitRedWings— Carley Johnston (@carleykjohnston) November 29, 2021

Jeff Blashill said “we would like to take our crowd” on the road. Also added his team needs to be able to find momentum on the road. #LGRW— Daniella Bruce (@daniellabruce_) November 29, 2021

Update:
