Quick Recap- Wings/Canucks

Well the Wings played well enough to win but they didn't.

Detroit dominated the second period while scoring two goals and lead 2-1 going to the third.

The Wings knew Vancouver would come out strong in the final period and once again Detroit could not hold a lead.

Canucks scored two in the third to win 3-2.

Goals and stats are below.

Again, first PP unit has nothing to show for using 5 of a possible 6 total minutes of PP time.

Lughes for Hughes! I don’t mind losing close games where we play well. Hopefully by camp next fall we’ll have learned from all the mistakes of this year.

Great way to lose a game.  Compete and be close but still get 0 points.  Keep it up, got to beat the Hawks to the bottom.

I was thinking they were playing good and it ends in 0 points. Was thinking about Larkin, fuming with the last 2 goals.

D is pretty bad with some old farts. Hopefully a top 4 D can be drafted soon.

Anyway 1st year rebuild continues, imo,

Not Playing Cholo in his home town was stupid, but another Blashill brain fart

The Horvat goal was a back breaker. Between the legs of kronner and Bernie. That was fugly.

The Wings seem to lose their legs in the 3rd. Looked flat.
