I'll write up something momentarily, but...Do we call this progress? The Detroit Red Wings edged the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 in a shootout, but the Wings also went 0-for-7 on special teams, gave up 2 power play goals, surrendered a 2-1 lead...

Update #3: Here's Brunner's shootout winner...

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
