The Detroit Red Wings wrapped up their five-game homestand Saturday with a frustrating 4-1 loss to Vegas.
“It’s going to be a little bit frustrating because I think the underlying numbers are going to look very similar to (Monday’s 4-2 loss to Toronto),” coach Derek Lalonde said. “There’s going to be some nerd telling us we should’ve won that game on expected goals. But that doesn’t happen against really good teams.”
Minutes after the game, Dylan Larkin turned his attention to Sunday’s date in Columbus, the start of a tough four-game trip during which he hopes his team can recoup some points.
“It’s just another one of those games where we’re really close, but it’s not enough to get a result,” Larkin said. “It hurts, but we got to switch focus and be ready to go tomorrow night because it’s back-to-back. We’ve been good on back-to-backs. We need to come out and play a solid road game.”
