The Positives In The Win By The Detroit Red Wings Over The Dallas Stars

10/29/2018 at 8:40am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

A fortuitous bounce off the glass enabled Tyler Bertuzzi to tap the puck into an open net and give the Detroit Red Wings a lead they would not relinquish.

It was a rare break for a team that has started 2-7-2 and was among several positives coach Jeff Blashill mentioned to his team following the 4-2 victory over the Dallas Stars at Little Caesars Arena.

They won at home for the first time (1-3-1).

They scored more than three goals for just the second time.

Jonathan Bernier displayed no rust after a long hiatus, making 28 saves.

Struggling Anthony Mantha was rewarded for playing hard with just his second goal of the season.

They had their first two-goal lead of the season in the third period.

They were disciplined, taking just one penalty that resulted in only 51 seconds of shorthanded time.

"Some of the games we've played, we'd get scored on and our compete level would go down," Blashill said. "That's how we would end up getting three, four, five goals scored on us. Tonight, when they scored the first goal, we kept working hard and good things happened."
