The telling part for the Detroit Red Wings will be how they handle their next game.
They enter Sunday's matchup with the Anaheim Ducks smarting, looking more like last season’s team that mustered points in just over half their games than the up-and-comers they appeared to be this season. Although they have points in four straight games, gaining only one from their 4-3 overtime loss at the Chicago Blackhawks was a disappointment after their two-goal lead in the third period.
Friday’s events were a reminder how tough it is to become a better team.
“It’s been an emphasis all camp, all going into this season,” Dylan Larkin said. “If we want to make a turn, all the good teams manage the puck well. All the good teams bear down in battles.
“Right now, we’re a little bit hyper in certain situations, and we just need to settle down.”
