Detroit has been outshot 205-95 in five of its past six games and scored only three goals in five games since its 7-3 victory over Dallas on April 22....
“We got to learn (to) spend more time in their zone. That’s why lately the shot differential is big,” Jonathan Bernier, who made 40 saves on Sunday, said. “We got to come out of our zone cleaner. I feel like defensively we’ve improved. We obviously got to find a way to score more goals. That’s the bottom line. It’s going to tough to win every night if you score only one or two. You got to put pucks towards the net, especially against (Tampa Bay’s Christopher) Gibson, (who) didn’t play much this year.”...
The Red Wings leveled the ice in the third period, outshooting the Lightning 7-6, but didn’t capitalize on three power plays in the final 7:44, including a full five-on-three advantage, during which they registered only one shot.
This is there they missed injured forwards Dylan Larkin, Tyler Bertuzzi, Robby Fabbri and Bobby Ryan.
“Certainly, our power play hasn’t been good enough; goaltending has been pretty good,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “I think the last week or so we’ve gotten zoned and given up way more shots. Previously, if you look back at games, they weren’t as one-sided from a shot aspect. From a chances aspect, there were a number of games our chances were greater, especially even-strength.
“So, I don’t know if it’s indicative of the season. Tonight, Bernie was good, and we needed our power play to score, and it didn’t.”
