Big Picture For Red Wings:
These two games against the Bruins this weekend are big ones for the Red Wings as they sit seven points back of the playoffs and the Bruins are the best team in the NHL this season with 103 points. Fabbri was hurt in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Blackhawks when he suffered a lower-body injury. Fabbri is a big loss for the Red Wings, he returned on January 4th and has played in 28 games scoring seven goals and nine assists so far. In his last five games, he had two assists. The Red Wings will have to rely on the other 12 forwards and even their six defensemen to get the offense going in these two big games.
