Everyone To The Net

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Most disappointing was their inability to get to the Blues' net and create havoc i front of inexperienced goalie Charlie Lindgren....

The bigger, physical Blues parked themselves often in front of goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic and made life difficult. Nedeljkovic was pulled after two periods.

Blues forward Dakota Joshua (Dearborn) had two assists and was one of many Blues forwards disrupting down low.

The Wings, on the flip side, didn't do so nearly enough.

“They were harder at the net, and they had a better net presence than us,” Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. “That’s the one thing if you look at all their goals, they did a real good job at the net. We lost our game a little bit in the third, especially in our zone on a couple of big breakdowns.

"(But) we couldn't find ways to create good enough chances, because not enough net presence."
