Surprising moves by coach Blashill

The Detroit Red Wings hit the ice this morning before hosting the New York Islanders tonight. From what it has been reported by Ansar Khan, Jeff Blashill did not put Anthony Mantha and Gustav Nyquist on powerplay drills at the morning skate.

Head Coach also confirmed Petr Mrazek will be in the net against the Islanders. Mrazek has a GAA of 3.16 this year which might force the Wings' players to play tight defensively “We have to make sure we are better defensively. We’ve scored well 5-on-5. Our power play has to be better if we want to go on a run. Do I think we are capable of going on a run? I know, 100%, we are capable of going on a run.” said Blashill after the morning skate.

Here is the complet lineup from this morning's practice
