Quick Recap- Detroit/Washington

12/19/2022 at 9:43pm EST

At the end of the first period it was ex-St. Louis Blues players 2, Washington zip. Husso had 10 saves.

Just the opposite in the second period. Washington outshot Detroit 17-7 and outscored them 2-0.

Both teams scored a goal in the third so on to overtime tied 3-3.

Orlov scores with :22 left in OT to win 4-3.

Team stats

Detroit goals are below.


At least they kept Ovie off the score sheet 


That and got a point after being outshot by a lot.


I was not able to watch the first period(those 7 pm starts really don't work for me), but in the last 40 minutes we were completely outplayed so we really escaped with a point. I thought Husso should have saved Orlov shot, but without Husso we would have lost this game 3:8. We continue to show great character and resolve, but now when top teams are starting to gain their form after slow starts, we can see how far away we are from where we need to be.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
