Box score

FRIDAY'S GAME: Wings rally to force OT, but fall to unbeaten Florida Panthers, 3-2

FULLY CHARGED: Seider wears 53 because of Herbie the Love Bug

Game notes: The Wings have gotten some big performances from their two prized rookies just eight games into the season. Moritz Seider, the No. 6 overall pick in 2019, has points in seven games, including an assist on the game-tying goal in Friday's OT loss to the Panthers. The 20-year-old, who wears No. 53 in honor of "Herbie the Love Bug," also led the Wings with 26:31 of ice time. Meanwhile, Lucas Raymond, the No. 4 overall pick in 2020, leads all NHL rookies with eight points; the 19-year-old was shut out Friday night, but had several strong scoring chances, including more than five minutes of time on the power play with veteran linemates Dylan Larkin and Tyler Bertuzzi. That trio won't be powered up in Toronto, however; Bertuzzi, as the NHL's only unvaccinated player, is ineligible to cross the border into Canada. He'll be on his own — unpaid — until the Wings return to the U.S. on Thursday. (They go from Toronto to Montreal for a game there Tuesday.)

BERT'S DAYS OFF: Tyler Bertuzzi 'will be by himself,' unpaid, while team in Canada

EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND: Remember when Red Wings fell to 4th in draft? Lucas looks like terrific consolation
