from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Mathias Brome hadn’t scored in 17 games, hadn’t earned a point, but he didn’t panic.
Brome is 26, an undrafted free agent who signed with the Red Wings, and has played professionally in the Swedish Elite League
He’s been through scoring slumps. And although frustrated, Brome knew he could get out of this one.

“I’m pretty old, I know a little how it is to have (scoring) chances and not to score,” said Brome after Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Florida in which Brome scored his first goal, turning out to be the game-winner.
“I had the same thing when I was back in Sweden my first year in the SEL (Swedish Elite League) and I had 13, or 14, or 15 games without a point there,” Brome said. “But I know it’s going to come when you create chances.
“You’re more worried when you don’t have any chances. But I created a lot of chances and today it went in, so I’m real happy and I’m glad we got a win.”
