Bounce Finally Goes Detroit’s Way

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

During a difficult season with many deflating goals against late in games, the Detroit Red Wings must have felt the hockey gods owed them one.

Those powers delivered on Friday, as Danny DeKeyser scored with 27.9 seconds to play in the third period for a 5-4 victory over the New York Islanders at Joe Louis Arena.

The Red Wings (21-21-9) stopped a five-game winless skid (0-2-3) by beating a club that had gone 6-0-1 in its previous seven.

It appeared the Islanders might pull out another one when Jason Chimera celebrated his 1,000th game by scoring with 2:26 remaining in regulation, after Darren Helm mishandled the puck near his net.

"Most of the time during the year those even out," Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg said. "I think that we had some bounces against us lately, so it was nice to see one go in for our side."

“Process” (!).

Z is correct, but we got nailed by bad officiating. Good hustle, poor defense, deplorable goaltending, the more influence coaching regime has on these players, especially the younger ones they become bad players.What is Blashill’s goal for this term.
