Somebody shake the Red Wings and tell them the holiday break is over.
The days go by, and the losses are mounting for this rapidly falling team.
The Dallas Stars pretty much had their way Saturday — a day after the front office bluntly called out high-scoring forwards Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn — defeating the Wings 5-1.
The Stars scored three goals in the second period, then added two early in the third to deflate a Wings team that largely didn’t show up.
“We deserved to lose 100 percent,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “They outplayed us, without question. They were faster than us all over the ice. I don’t think they are faster than us, so that’s the way we played. We have to be better than that.”
Below, watch the game highlights and Justin Abdelkader, Frans Nielsen, Gus Nyquist, and Jeff Blashill in post-game talk.
