04/24/2013 22:21 Red Wings win to move back into playoff picture
Jordin Tootoo netted the go-ahead goal early in the third period, and Johan Franzen scored on a power play with 6:26 left, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-1 win Wednesday night over the Los Angeles Kings and into eighth place in the Western Conference.
Jordin Tootoo joins the Red Wings after an eight-year run as a pest for the rival Predators and his assignment in Detroit will likely be on a checking line after he signed a three-year, $5.7 million deal in July. Coming off of a career-high 30 points, there will be questions about Tootoo's ability to repeat that offensive performance, but he remains a useful option for leagues that reward penalty minutes (92) even though he's no longer a lock to reach triple digits in that category.
