- Red Wings are on a six game losing streak.
Why It Matters for Red Wings and Robby Fabbri
Robby Fabbri has a history of ACL injuries so seeing a lower body injury with him heading straight down the tunnel to the locker room is cause for concern. Fabbr’s had three ACL surgeries in his career and actually just came back on January 4th after recovering from his third surgery. This season Fabbri has played in 27 games scoring seven goals and adding nine assists for 16 points. Fabbri was on fire when he returned scoring three goals in his first four games.
The Red Wings are still in a playoff race even after dropping their last six games and currently are tied with the Blackhawks 2-2 after two periods of play. After trading off some offensive scorers, the loss of Fabbri could really take the Red Wings out of the playoff picture completely. Let's hope he's okay and can return for Saturday's matchup against the Boston Bruins.
