Red Wings' Tomas Tatar: Helps out in win
Tatar picked up an assist Monday in a 5-1 home win over the Senators.
Tatar has seen his ice time steadily climb in two games since the Oct. 13 opener against the Lightning. This is a curious trend, however, as the Slovak had gone minus-4 in the first two contests. With so much talent up front, it's going to be important for Tatar to tighten up his defense and catch fire offensively. Even though he came up empty, his five shots on goal Monday prove that he's trying to assert himself, at least in the attacking zone.
