Detroit's Winning Streak Stopped

04/05/2019 at 9:34am EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

They’re not going to win them all.

The way the Red Wings had been playing, it appeared they’d run the table heading to the end of the regular season — and pummel the hopes and dreams of every “tank” proponent out there.

But it’s not going to happen — the run the table part.

The Pittsburgh Penguins shook themselves into playoff mode — it helped they had Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang back in the lineup — and defeated the Wings, 4-1, Thursday night.

“We were on our heels a little bit right from the start,” defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. “We didn’t have as much determination and urgency that we need to have, and have had lately. It just wasn’t good enough.”


Below, watch Kronwall, Puempel and Blashill post-game.

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.
