For all the things the Detroit Red Wings are doing well, their piggy bank is a piglet.
They’ve earned points in two straight games for the first time this season, but had to settle for a meager one when they lost in overtime, 3-2, Monday to the Chicago Blackhawks at Little Caesars Arena. The Original Six rivals meet again Wednesday.
The performance included a goal from newcomer Christian Djoos, 21 saves from Thomas Greiss, and shutting down the Blackhawks power play three times.
“We battled, we played with the puck, our PK did a great job. Greisser was great again,” captain Dylan Larkin said. “We battled and got a point. We have to find a way to get the next point there.”
The most glaring way to do so would be to get the power play figured out. The Wings had two of them Monday, and generated one shot on net.
“We have to find way to get it going,” Larkin said. “I think we’ve done an OK job getting it set up. We just have to find a way to get it around the net. We’re too much to the outside.
“We have to find a way to win the special teams battle. Ultimately that’s going to help us win these close games.”
