Holland said Ericsson...
DETROIT -- It seems like just yesterday when Jonathan Ericsson was the young defenseman arriving on the scene and making an impact for the Detroit Red Wings.
In the Wings' 2009 playoff run, Ericsson stunned everyone with his four goals and four assists in the 22 games, and by playing three days after an emergency appendectomy. He had played just 19 regular-season games.
In this 2013 season that has been condensed down to 48 games, each one has an added feeling of emphasis.
Out to a 1-2 start and already laden with injuries, the Detroit Red Wings should be feeling uneasy.
After falling to St. Louis on opening night by a whopping 6-0 margin, the Wings were able to regroup and beat Columbus 4-3 in shootout fashion.
Tonight, finally playing at Joe Louis...
