The Talk After A Shootout Loss To Buffalo

11/30/2022 at 11:29pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

David Perron and two Oskar Sundqvist goals in the third period tied the game 4-4 after the Wings looked headed for another disappointing loss and trailing 4-1.

The Wings had a 1 minute, 27 second two-man advantage in the final two minutes of regulation time but failed to convert, capping an 0-for-7 night on the power play and forcing overtime.

"Supposed to be, not satisfied, but happy with the way we came back and battled from down 4-1, and it's a good sign," forward Andrew Copp said. "But it still stinks right now not getting the extra point. We had a couple chances to put it away, and it stings a lot more than it should."...

"I'm real proud of the guys, you just don't come back from three goals down in this league, and the way we did it," coach Derek Lalonde said. "The fight back started at the end of the second period, and down 4-1 and things weren't going our way, the guys just dug in and I'm really proud of the group. This is a huge point we'll tap back into throughout the season."

Goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic got his first start since Nov. 12 (he did relieve Ville Husso Monday), struggled to open the game but rebounded to keep the Wings close while stopping 30 shots.

"He battled," Lalonde said. "It's a game that's not going well for him, he doesn't look himself, and to compete and battle the way he did, it's good on him."

I was at the game. Nice comeback, but should have scored the winning goal in regulation with the Pittsburgh 5 on 3.
