Quick Recap- DRW/TML

11/28/2022 at 9:36pm EST

Offensively the Wins had an off night. They either could not hit the net, fanned on a shot or their shot could not get through to the goal.

Credit to the Leafs who capitalized on their chances and had a 4-1 lead after the second period.

Detroit scored with about seven minutes left in the third period to make it 4-2 but there was no more scoring. Toronto wins 4-2.

Detroit goals are below.

Team stats.

Buffalo visits Detroit on Wednesday night, the game is on TNT at 7pm.


As I said the Red Wings out shot the Leafs by around 45 to 24, but as I stated in Kate's blog Husso had a off night. 


I thought Husso looked fatigued during and after the Arizona game, i was really surprised Lalonde started him again. I think it is fine to ride the hot hand but I think the staff and Lalonde should have done a better job of evaluating Husso's energy levels. We heard about this Tandem all off season, even though Ned has not been great you cannot burn a goalie out either. Superstition is not a good reason either. Change your sweater and take shower and let logic takeover. 


100% disagree, 0 issue starting Husso, why change a winning lineup?

They played their last game on Friday, he had two full days "off" from game action, and we only played 2 games in the last week, it'd be different if we played back to back to back, or he played 3 games in 5 nights or something.   Plus, how do you learn a goalies workload, unless you give him a workload?

If Lalonde started Ned who has been sitting for quite some time and he gave up the softies, we likely ask the other question, why put in a cold goalie against a high powered team at home.  


Exactly. The goaltender is, to me, the most important player on the ice. He is the very last defender, and, Husso probably shouldn’t have started tonight. Finding the back of the net more than twice would have been great too.
