"Maybe it had to do something with the rest, (but) it seemed like after the first period they had their legs and we didn't,'' Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard said. “We have tomorrow off, take full advantage of it and then get a good skate on Friday.
“We played a lot of hockey in the last little time and with a lot of travel. The day off and sleeping in our own beds will do us well."
The Red Wings have dropped Game 1 in each of their past four series. All have come on the road.
"We've been in this position before,'' Howard said. “We were in this position last series. It's one game. They definitely played better than us. Saturday we have to respond."
Said Damien Brunner: “It’s good for us to get a day off. We came off a seven-game series. That’s not an excuse. But, I think we take that day off.''

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.
