Fabbri scores, Bernier hurt in Red Wings' 3-2 win over Stars

  Fabbri scores, Bernier hurt in Red Wings' 3-2 win over Stars DETROIT — Robby Fabbri scored three goals, one in each period, and the Detroit Red Wings held on to beat the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Thursday night. “He’s not the biggest or fastest guy, but he makes up for it with competitiveness," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. The Red Wings did have a setback, losing goaltender Jonathan Bernier to an injury late in the second period after he stopped all 22 shots he faced. Bernier kept weight off his right skate as he was helped off the ice after Dallas forward Denis Gurianov skated into him, trying to get the puck that caromed off the end boards. Thomas Greiss finished the game in net for the Red Wings and had 16 saves.

According to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, the Detroit Red Wings have placed Evgeny Svechnikov on waivers for the second time this season after the young forward cleared in early January. Now that he has played 10 games for the Red Wings this season, he needed to clear waivers again to be assigned to the taxi squad or minor leagues.

Svechnikov, 24, has never developed into the top-six power forward that Detroit hoped for when it selected him 19th overall in 2015. His younger brother Andrei Svechnikov has reached those heights in Carolina, but the Red Wings forward has instead toiled at the minor league level for almost all of his professional career. In 30 NHL games, Svechnikov has nine points, five of those coming this season. Even in the minor leagues, though, things haven’t gone smoothly, with Svechnikov only recording 60 points in 112 AHL games since the start of 2017-18.

  Capitals beat Rangers 5-4 for 10th victory in 11 games. WASHINGTON — Tom Wilson had two goals, Alex Ovechkin scored his 724th and the Washington Capitals held on to beat the New York Rangers 5-4 on Sunday for their 10th victory in 11 games. Ovechkin has 11 goals in those 11 games and leads the team with 18. He’s seven shy of tying Marcel Dionne for fifth on the NHL career list. T.J. Oshie had a goal and two assists, Evgeny Kuznetsov also scored, and Ilya Samsonov made 16 saves. Colin Blackwell scoredOvechkin has 11 goals in those 11 games and leads the team with 18. He’s seven shy of tying Marcel Dionne for fifth on the NHL career list. T.J. Oshie had a goal and two assists, Evgeny Kuznetsov also scored, and Ilya Samsonov made 16 saves.

Of course, part of the reason why that number is so low is the entire season he missed in 2018-19 after suffering a major knee injury. While that can’t be completely blamed for his stalled development, it certainly didn’t help things.

There have been flashes of potential this season, but Svechnikov doesn’t appear to really be in the long-term plans for the Red Wings. His one-year contract will expire at the end of this season and leaves him a restricted free agent again. Should a team want to claim him now, he’d have to remain on its NHL roster until clearing waivers in the future.
