The overnight report: Red Wings-Panthers wrap-up—about time for a Coreau of hope

The Detroit Red Wings managed to battle their way to a 4-3 shootout win over the Florida Panthers on Friday, with the Wings rallying from a 3-1 deficit en route to their victory...

And if I may be a little petty and a lot honest: this game felt more like a huge relief to me than it did a satisfying win--this is one the Wings needed, and needed by any means necessary--the fact that two disputed goal calls went against the opposing team sure felt satisfying.

The fact that the Panthers were found to be fuming about Nick Bjugstad having negated Keith Yandle's would-be 4-1 goal for backing into Jared Coreau's crease before Coreau had the ability to skate out to stop Yandle's shot? That's just delightful:

Red Wings-Panthers quick take, take 4: Sudden life!

The Red Wings played the Florida Panthers for the fourth and final time during the 2016-17 regular season on Friday in Miami, with the Wings aiming to earn their first win against Florida this season.

The Red Wings didn't play dominant hockey by any means, surrendering a 3-1 lead, but the Wings got a little fortunate as the Panthers' 4-1 goal was negated by a coach's challenge, and then the Wings got to the work of rallying from their deficit on goals by Drew Miller and Frans Nielsen, and the Wings battled through a huge penalty-kill in OT to head to the shootout...

Where Nielsen delivered Jared Coreau (31 saves) his first NHL win, and the Wings emerged with an incredibly necessary 4-3 triumph going into the Christmas break.
