One positive in the Detroit Red Wings’ loss Wednesday in Philadelphia? Another sign that Dylan Larkin is getting hot offensively. Larkin scored the Red Wings’ opening goal in what would eventually be another defeat in the city of Philadelphia, 4-3 in overtime. It was Larkin’s fourth goal, his second in two games, and Larkin was much more aggressive offensively and looking to create scoring opportunities. “Larks has played good hockey lately,” said coach Jeff Blashill, who has Larkin back playing on a wing after beginning the season at center. “He’s getting chances, he’s getting shots, his impact on the games have been good overall. “I’m happy with where his game is at.” On his goal against the Flyers, Larkin gathered the puck near the right circle and carried it to the high slot, where he shot the puck that glanced off the skate of Philadelphia forward Jakub Voracek and into the net.
