The Red Wings were better, but that much needed victory proved elusive.
After getting embarrassed over the weekend in Pittsburgh, and with rumors about coach Jeff Blashill's job security building, the Wings came out Wednesday and took the New York Rangers into overtime before losing 5-4.
At this point, after such a disappointing weekend, the Wings felt good about taking some positive steps.
"Just more of the same feeling (losing a game) but there were positive out of this," captain Dylan Larkin said. "Our work ethic and compete, we had those. It was very important (to battle hard).
"The last game, obviously, it was not even close (to acceptable) and there was a lot of discussion in our locker room, a lot of guys thinking about that last game, and we came out and played hard and had a good response."
