How Will The Wings React To Their Blowout Loss?

02/27/2019 at 5:24pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The scene pretty much typified Tuesday’s 8-1 loss to Montreal for the Red Wings, another low point to what's becoming a forgettable season.

Dylan Larkin, fresh off a scrap with Montreal’s Brett Kulak, storming through the hallway to the locker room, throwing his helmet down, in equal parts anger and frustration.

It all boiled over there, with five minutes left in the game. The Wings' young leader, reacting to an ugly evening.

“I was frustrated with what happened there,” said Larkin. “I didn’t know what that guy (Kulak) was doing, if he was angry about the little slash I gave him a couple shifts before. It’s pretty ridiculous. I just tapped him in a 7-1 game and he comes after my head.

“I wasn’t happy abut that. And the effort there, (and) myself. The way it’s been going – it all added up there.”...

It’ll be interesting to watch how the Red Wings react to this embarrassment – with 18 games left in the schedule and the losses mounting. Many young players are in leading roles, and there will be opportunities for them to show they can play significant roles.

That wasn’t the case against Montreal, though, which was discouraging, from both young and older players.
