Video- Post Game Talk After Beating The Ducks

10/23/2022 at 9:35pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

"Real good," said Lalonde of the way the Wings responded. "We had a good start, (goaltender) Ville (Husso) was real good in the second period and the special teams, this was what we call an assistant coaches win because of the special teams. They were dynamite.

"It was a real good night."

The Wings talked immediately after Friday's loss about learning from that loss and they seemed to play with a purpose.

"We kind of got a lesson last game, how to win those games," said Dominik Kubalik, who had a goal and two assists Sunday as he continues to be an early-season revelation. "We did a pretty good job with it today. In all, a pretty good job."...

The Wings have yet to allow a power play goal this season.

"I had goosebumps and I'm on the bench, I can't imagine what it did for our players," said Lalonde of the lengthy penalty kill to end the period. "Huge, huge momentum. The guys were fired up because of that kill. My message was you get an effort like that, we don't waste this, and let's make sure we win that second (period) and try to finish this game off."

Said Husso: "It was a huge kill for us, and that gives you energy for sure when you go into the locker room and it's still 2-1 for sure. Guys are doing a great job on the PK keeping the puck on the outside and making our game easy."

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

When 232-pound Detroit Red Wings defenseman Ben Chiarot delivered heavy megaton checks to Ryan Strome along the boards in the second period, he may have left players on both teams wide-eyed.

“I was just lucky that I was watching,” said Red Wings forward Dominik Kubalik “I was waiting with my D Man
there. I was watching when he was running around and killing people. That was kind of nice. I caught myself laughing. I was like ‘oh my god, he’s doing it again.’ I just remember when I play against him, he’s obviously hard to play against.”

Obviously, Kubalik exaggerated a bit. Chiarot wasn’t even penalized. But Chiarot was a beastly presence in Detroit’s 5-1 win against the Anaheim. He was irritated at what he considered untoward hit against him. His response was a couple of hits against Strome.

“I think he felt he got hit from behind there,” Detroit coach Derek Lalonde said. “He joked after the second (period), he said a few years ago that probably would have been 15 minutes of penalties after taking a hit like that but he felt he did it the right way. He went physical, basically won the shift, so it was
a positive.”
