The Wings headed into Ottawa after a stinker in Pittsburgh trying to right the ship, but missing Larkin. Thanks to two big blunders by a Norris D-Man, Detroit held a lead for much of the latter half of the game before getting caught up on late and going to OT, then eventually the shootout. Naturally, the Wings lose because shootout.
- Erik Karlsson desperately wants to be a Red Wing. You can see it in how he plays.
- I think the days of the real enforcer are thankfully winding down, but I would be lying if I were to say I wasn't happy about Kyle Quincey angrily flying in to tell Phaneuf to watch his mouth when it comes to jabbering at Henrik Zetterberg.
- The game had only one ref for most of the night and most of the players don't even remember an NHL that only ever had one ref on the ice. I figured we might see more shit behind the play than we did, but not so much.
Thumbs the people now!
