A Bounce Back Win For The Wings

11/07/2018 at 8:21am EST

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Little was going the Detroit Red Wings' way the first half of Tuesday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

They were being outshot by a wide margin and were on their heels. They had a pair of coach's challenges go against them. They faced a two-goal deficit midway through the second period.

Earlier this season, they might have folded, or they might have come back and played just well enough to lose.

Lately, they have been more resilient. On this night, they got stronger as the game progressed, tied it early in the third period and won it 3-2 in a shootout at Little Caesars Arena.

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Fans were on their feet when Bo Horvat was the last guy to go in the shootout.

While LCA is undergoing a black seat renovation to hide attendance problems, the Wings have, with victories in three of their past four home games, given those in attendance reason to stay in their seats.

“As everyone has grown accustomed to the arena here, they don’t have to go and check out the concourse as much,” Blashill said. “I think they still like the beers and the food down here in the clubs, but — it’s not as much of a museum for people, now it’s an ice rink, a real nice stadium. But part of our job as a team is to give them something to get excited about, so we have to go out there and perform. Every time we’ve been in a game that’s close or we’re leading, the crowd has been great.

“Our guys see that when we give our group something to cheer for, it can be a real great building. It’s been a great building here the last number of games when we’ve won.”
