Red Wings are “overjoyed” to have Dylan Larkin return this evening….

DT – Getting Dylan Larkin back in uniform tonight is an unexpected lift for the Detroit Red Wings, given that he was unconscious and lying flat on the ice just nine days ago.

After missing four games due to an upper-body ailment, Larkin will start against the Anaheim Ducks at Little Caesars Arena (7 p.m., Bally Sports Detroit Extra), according to coach Derek Lalonde.

“He was cleared yesterday, we had some contact with the skate yesterday to see how he responded, and we received the go-ahead afterwards,” Lalonde stated.

He is much needed by the Red Wings (15-11-4), especially with his scoring prowess. They have lost their last two games to Carolina and Philadelphia, scoring only one goal between them. They are 1-4-1 in their last six games.

Lalonde declared, “We’re ecstatic.” “We thought today might be a little aggressive, even after what we’ve been through in the last week, but it worked out well, and it’s obviously a good sign for us to get him back.”

“It’s a boost, but I think it slots people correctly,” Lalonde continued. I’m not sure if he’ll be performing at the highest level he ever has. You witnessed that the other night with J.T. (Compher). We really benefited from J.T. as it accurately placed the personnel, although NHL pace takes some getting used to.

On December 9, Larkin was hit in the head by Mathieu Joseph of Ottawa while Parker Kelly was cross-checking him from the other side.

Larkin, Joe Veleno, and Patrick Kane will form a line up to begin the game.

Just six days remain before the Red Wings’ Christmas break begins with four games.

“We’ve given up some ground. We must undoubtedly begin earning points, according to Lalonde. “In our last two games, we have given up three goals and failed to secure a point.” We must play our game with a little more desperation tonight.

They then have to continue it for the remainder of the week.

Lalonde declared, “We have to push.” “We knew we had been eyeing this series of games for some time. We were aware that this would be a very difficult task. There are usually one or two of them in everyone’s calendar. For us, it just so happened to be now, perhaps even more so in light of our vacation to Europe. We haven’t handled it well, albeit it’s probably just awful timing given where our lineup has been. These are really insightful observations. It’s not time to wallow in self-pity. We had to delve a little further.
