Larkin will miss Tuesday’s game for undisclosed personal reasons. The 25-year-old center ranks third on the team with eight points in eight games.

This will be Larkin’s second game missed this season. He previously sat out against the Vancouver Canucks on Oct. 16 while serving a one-game suspension for roughing Tampa Bay Lightning forward Mathieu Joseph.

 

In Larkin’s absence, Michael Rasmussen will likely fill the middle spot on Detroit’s top line. Adam Erne also appears set to return to the lineup after missing the Red Wings’ 5-4 loss to Anaheim on Halloween.

Expect the Red Wings to run with these forward lines in Montreal:

Robby FabbriMichael RasmussenLucas Raymond

Puck-drop tonight at the Bell Centre is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET. You’ll be able to catch the game on Bally Sports Detroit Plus.
