"Sometimes you just need a lucky bounce to get things rolling," Green said. "Maybe we need to get a few more pucks to the net, including myself up top. Try to get those dirty goals to get our confidence up."

It was Green's first goal with the Red Wings. He now has seven points in 14 contests this season. As far as his point-per-game pace goes, that's certainly a good one for a defenseman, but he's capable of even better. "I think we’re just at the tip of the iceberg for him," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "I think he’s going to continue to get better and better as he gets more and more comfortable."
