Red Wings’ Christian Fischer issues apology to his mother after a huge blunder in a TV interview; he realized his mistake straight away

The Detroit Red Wings have had an up-and-down season, but they’re still in a great place to reach the playoffs, as they’re currently on the second wild card place.

On Thursday, they got a great boost in the form of captain Dylar Larkin returning from injury and playing great hockey immediately.

Larkin, who’s missed the last eight games for the Red Wings, had two goals straight away as the Red Wings beat the New York Islanders 6-3.

Larkin’s return from a lower-body injury may be just what the Red Wings need to make a real playoff push as the postseason is getting closer, and his goals meant goal number 27 and 28, a team-high in Detroit.

But Larkin wasn’t the only standout player for the Red Wings on Thursday.

Patrick Kane also scored, but Christian Fischer, who had just 16 points this season heading into Thursday’s game, scored a goal and two assists.

Fischer was obviously in a great mood, and when he did a TV interview during the second intermission, he was all smiles talking about the game, and especially the return of captain Larkin.

”I could go on and on for how much that guy does for this team, and how much he means for us. I mean, you hear the crowd, they know Larkin is back, and so do we,” he said.

”Big players like that… that’s our captain.”

Fischer also had a hilarious incident in the interview. He got so taken away that he accidentally dropped an F-bomb, but he soon realized his mistake.

”Oh, sorry. We love him. And obviously, a two-goal lead, that’s huge, that’s a really good team, we knew we had to stay patient,” he said after the blunder.

But before Fischer walked away from the interview, he turned straight to the camera.

”Sorry Mom, about swearing,” he said.
