The Wings came out ready to play an NHL game. I am going to stress the point, this is all Detroit fans want from their team and for at least 20 minutes, the Wings played the type of game expected of them. Detroit up 2-1 after the first period.
I thought Carolina had the better chances int the 2nd period although both teams added a goal. After 40 minutes, Detroit 3 Carolina 2.
No scoring in the 3rd until Hronek added an empty net goal.
Wings win 4-2, Detroit goals below and a Bernier save.
