from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
It was beginning to look grim for the Red Wings.
Here they were Thursday in San Jose without a victory on a road trip that looked ripe for the taking, in terms of multiple victories, and suddenly, they were either trailing or tied at various times of the game.
The prospect of heading into Columbus Saturday without a victory looked entirely possible.
But, as they've shown at times this season, this roster does respond when challenged.
The Wings rallied twice Thursday, defeated San Jose, 7-4, and left California with a needed victory.
They head into Columbus with a chance to still make this a good, if not great, road trip with a victory.
"We found a way to get a win here," said David Perron, who had a goal and two assists for the Wings. "It's like Newsy (coach Derek Lalonde) talked about, and all of a sudden our record looks better, it's good to get two points and we get a chance to (have) a good road trip.
"We almost buckled, but we didn't, and we stayed strong."
