Detroit Red Wings captain @Dylan Larkin is in the midst of a career renaissance.
After scoring just nine goals and 23 points in 44 games in 2020–21, the 25-year-old center ranks 11th in the National Hockey League this season with 27 goals in just 49 games.
Larkin will look to extend his current 10-game point-scoring streak on Friday evening when his Red Wings take on the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning.
Over his last 10 games (dating back to Jan. 29), Larkin has amassed seven goals and 18 points. He most recently netted the game-tying goal late in the third period of Tuesday’s contest against the Carolina Hurricanes, which the Red Wings ultimately took in overtime by a 4–3 score.
Earlier in the 2021–22 season, Larkin strung together a seven-game point streak (featuring six goals and 10 points) between Nov. 13 and 27. The longest point streak of Larkin’s career lasted 14 games between Dec. 4 and 31, 2018, during which he racked up seven goals and 17 points.
On a related note: Red Wings defenseman @Moritz Seider is currently riding a franchise-record seven-game point streak entering Friday’s action. On Tuesday, Seider surpassed Reed Larson for the longest point streak by a rookie defenseman in Red Wings history.
The Red Wings will visit the Lightning at Amalie Arena on Friday at 7:00 p.m. ET. You can read our preview of that game here.
