A year or so ago, it was a viral video of three Detroit Red Wings players cackling at a Vancouver Canucks opponent as they were chirping him. Today, it’s a shot of two Red Wings heckling one of their teammates.
Last season, cameras caught then Red Wings forward Tyler Bertuzzi, along with teammates Robby Fabbri and Lucas Raymond, laughing hysterically, apparently at something Bertuzzi was saying to the Vancouver Canucks player immediately across from the Detroit bench.

That Vancouver player? Current Red Wings forward Alex Chiasson. All Chiasson has done since being signed March 3 is collect four points in five games, including a pair of power-play goals in the last two games.
The moral of the story? Be careful who you are chirping. They may end up being your teammate.
Wallinder Nets Big Shorthanded goal
The SHL playoffs were continuing on Monday. Rogle, in need of a win to stave off elimination by Leksand, was accomplishing that objective. They were rallying from a 2-1 deficit for a 3-2 victory.

Defenseman William Wallinder, a Detroit draftee (32nd overall, 2020), was potting a huge shorthanded goal to knot the count at 2-2. Center Marco Kasper, the eighth overall selection of the Red Wings in the 2022 NHL entry draft, also is playing for Rogle.
The decisive game in this best-of-three set is slated for Tuesday.
