|DETROIT: LAST SEASON: 30-39-13, 73 points. Fifth place in Atlantic Division.
COACH: Jeff Blashill (104-105-37, fourth NHL season).
ADDED: F Thomas Vanek, G Jonathan Bernier, F Filip Zadina, assistant
COACH Dan Bylsma.
LOST: F Henrik Zetterberg.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Dylan Larkin. The 22-year-old center was given a $30.5 million, five-year contract to lead the franchise on and off the ice. Larkin led the team with 47 assists and 63 points, surpassing the career highs he set as a rookie two years ago. Without Zetterberg, he will have to do even more this season.
OUTLOOK: The rebuilding Red Wings will likely miss the playoffs for a third straight year, their longest drought since 1979-83. Zetterberg's career-ending back injury was a hit for a franchise that simply can't replace him this season. Larkin, Anthony Mantha and Andreas Athanasiou, all of whom signed multiyear deals last summer, provide some hope as young, talented forwards. Goaltender Jimmy Howard should be able to keep games close, but a shaky defense and lack of quality depth will be tough to overcome.
|ST LOUIS: LAST SEASON: 44-32-6, 94 points. Finished fourth in Central Division, one point shy of a playoff spot.
COACH: Mike Yeo (second full season, eighth NHL season).
ADDED: C Ryan O'Reilly, C Tyler Bozak, F David Perron, F Patrick Maroon, G Chad Johnson.
LOST: F Vladimir Sobotka, F Patrik Berglund, F Tage Thompson.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Ryan O'Reilly. St. Louis was active this offseason, highlighted by a blockbuster trade with Buffalo that netted the skilled O'Reilly. The 27-year-old center had 24 goals and 37 assists in his final season with the lowly Sabres. Playing for the refurbished Blues, he could be headed for a big year.
OUTLOOK: Loaded. The addition of O'Reilly, Bozak, Perron and Maroon should create a deep set of lines, and captain Alex Pietrangelo remains one of the NHL's top defensemen. The most pressing concern for St. Louis just might be the health of high-scoring winger Vladimir Tarasenko, who is coming back from April surgery on his left shoulder.
|Productive Perron leads Blues against Red Wings|
Forward David Perron has picked up where he left off, and apparently so have the St. Louis Blues.
Perron pushed his personal point streak to 16 games (nine goals, 12 assists) after collecting three goals and two assists in his last three contests since returning from a nearly two-month absence due to a concussion.
While the missed time prevents Perron's personal point streak as being viewed as official in the eyes of the NHL rulebook, the Blues have recorded five points (2-0-1) since his return heading into Thursday's home encounter against the Detroit Red Wings.
Perron, who tallied twice in a 4-3 setback in Detroit on Nov. 28, scored two goals and set up another in St. Louis' 7-2 romp over Edmonton on Tuesday.
New linemate Jaden Schwartz received top billing against the Oilers, however, after recording his fourth NHL hat trick and third career four-point performance.
The fact that the pair worked well together was no surprise to the 30-year-old Perron.
"Yeah, why not," Perron said. "He actually brings it up a lot that when I play with him, I get hat tricks because I got two against Calgary in the last two years and he was on the line. So I'm glad to turn it around on him a little bit. We both had two there, it was nice for one of us to get one."
Schwartz welcomed the offensive surge after scoring just seven times in his previous 59 games.
"I think you need to relax a little bit. You feel more confident with the puck," the 26-year-old Schwartz said. "Maybe find open areas a little more. I think in any sport when you're having a little bit more success it gives you a little bit better feeling."
St. Louis native Patrick Maroon scored in his third straight game and rookie goaltender Jordan Binnington improved to 14-3-0 in his last 17 starts for the Blues, who reside two points ahead of Dallas for third place in the Central Division.
Detroit put the brakes on its demoralizing 1-9-3 stretch by winning back-to-back contests, including notching a 3-2 victory against the New York Rangers on Tuesday in the opener of its five-game road trip.
Speedy forward Andreas Athanasiou, who scored in the first meeting with St. Louis, tallied twice for the second consecutive contest on Tuesday to push his season goal total to a team-leading 28.
"He's been playing great for us," All-Star goaltender Jimmy Howard said of the 24-year-old Athanasiou. "When he's going, we are a lot better team. He is a gamebreaker."
Howard preserved the win against the Rangers by turning aside 41 shots for the second time in five starts.
Howard, who turns 35 on Tuesday, signed a one-year extension with the Red Wings on Wednesday.
"It means a lot," Howard said prior to the official announcement. "This is the only organization I know. I love playing for the Wings. My family loves living in Detroit. It's very special."
Howard improved to 14-9-2 in 25 career encounters versus the Blues by making 33 saves in the November contest.
