from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
No need for the Red Wings to rally Tuesday and earn a dramatic come-from-behind victory.
They never had to, in the least.
The Wings had one of the best starts of the season and never let Arizona back in the game, cruising to 6-1 victory at Little Caesars Arena.
Don’t look now, but with the victory, the Wings moved to the .500 mark (8-8-2, 18 points). They’ve now won four consecutive games, and seven of their last eight to erase those memories of an ugly 1-7-2 start.
from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
Their 6-1 shellacking of the Arizona Coyotes Tuesday at Little Caesars Arena was the Wings’ seventh victory in their last eight games, and improved them to .500. Are they a playoff team? Hardly. Will a December that features nine road games including at Boston, Toronto and Pittsburgh bring them back down? Probably. But right now the Wings are a team taking advantage of playing at home, and they are a team that has figured out how to score.
“Oddly enough I think that’s how the league works at times,” Mike Green said after contributing a goal and two assists as the Wings won their fourth straight game. “You put in the work and you stay consistent with it, and down the road, it does pay off.”
