from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
"You have to tip the hat to their goalie," Wings coach Derek Lalonde said. "I will have to watch back to see if we could have done more around him as far as taking his space and his eyes. But it just felt like we got a world-class goalie performance against us.
"But, the critique is, is that we spent 10 minutes in the box. Great job on the penalty kill, we went five-for-five, but the fact we were a much better team five-on-five, that’s 10 minutes of the game we weren’t able to get rhythm. Those stretches where it was five-on-five, lines were rolling, we got good rhythm. I the it would have been a different outcome."
Andrew Copp said the penalties affected the Wings, "big time. We’re running four killers right now so, you’ve got eight guys on the bench. Especially for some of those back-to-backs, I mean, it’s even tough for the guys killing because you’re kind of doubling a lite bit. It almost takes you out of the rhythm of the five-on-five game. It can really disrupt the flow of the bench."
