The Red Wings won last night but at a high cost. Rookie defenseman Danny DeKeyser broke his thumb and will be out for the rest of the playoffs. This means that our other defenseman will have to step it up a notch. DeKeyser has been fantastic so far this season and quite frankly this sucks. It will be interesting to see who gets the nod out of Lashoff, Colaiacovo and White. I think it will be Colaiacovo as of right now since he has the most experience of the three but they may very well go with Lashoff.
Anyways, here's your Quick Hits:

He played good during the beginning of the game.
Sure they blew the lead, but they won so it's not big deal.
