A2Y- Quick Recap Wings/Pens

12/28/2022 at 10:11pm EST

via Ted Kulfan tweets during the 1st period...

RedWings in early hole with O'Connor scoring at 2:36

Jeff Carter on the PP, it's 2-0 Penguins 1st period

Zucker intercepts pass, drives to net, 3-0 Pens at 14:15; #RedWings look like a team that hasn't played in a week

This is shades of last season's rout here. Penguins score off mad scramble in front, Carter maybe getting credit on the PP, and it's 4-0 with 32 seconds left in 1st period

Kulfan after 40 minutes...

End 2nd period: Penguins 4, #RedWings 2 - Wings found their legs that period, are back in this game.

Detroit scored with 5 minutes left in the 3rd to make it 4-3 and then added a power play goal with 3:08 left. Tie game!

No more scoring in the third and in OT, Jake Walman puts a bow on the comeback, Wings wing 5-4.

Team stats

Detroit goals are below.


I watched the whole game I figured a 7-0 blowout.


Same. I was livid after the first. Told my lady, "There no way Hellberg isn't in to start the 2nd." Literally fuming because life has been shit lately.

Fast forward ~43 minutes, and I now know what the "Griddy" is.


It would of been easy to give up after the first and mail it in.  Larkin breaks the shutout and it just started rolling from there. Amazing comeback! I watched the Pens feed and they were shocked lol. Love it

Go Wings! Great character win.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
