from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

As losses go, at least this one had some value for the Detroit Red Wings.

It was a much-needed confidence boost for Jimmy Howard, who this team needs to carry the load until Jonathan Bernier returns from injury.

It was another step in the right direction for young forwards Filip Zadina, as a scorer, and Givani Smith, as a strong forechecker and net presence.

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Red Wings kept it close for most of the night, but ultimately Pittsburgh’s stars came through.

Sidney Crosby redirected a pass from Evgeni Malkin on the power play Friday and gave the Penguins a 2-1 overtime victory.

A Luke Glendening interference penalty led to the Penguins’ man advantage, and Pittsburgh took advantage at 1:33 of overtime.

“When you give skilled players like that constant looks on the power play, they’re going to make you pay, it’s as simple as that,” said goaltender Jimmy Howard, who kept the Wings close with 35 saves.

In a season that’s been the roughest and most disappointing of his career, Howard had, arguably, one of his best games of the season.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
