Game highlights and below are Dylan Larkin and Derek Lalonde.




from Nolan Bianchi of the Detroit News,

"In reality, I think at any other time, this is probably a really good point," Red Wings head coach Derek Lalonde told Bally Sports Detroit. "I think the fact that we're sitting on an 0-4-1 stretch and we had some good chances, it's a little frustrating. ... But in reality, probably a pretty good point."..."Instead of just going and playing, playing free, playing with confidence, we're thinking a lot," Larkin said. "I really think what we worked on in practice. Tonight, it was much better. We generated much more and it's just sometimes the way it goes. They get one shot and it's in our net. So, it is what it is."..."Our five-on-five game was probably better in our last game out, but we lost the special teams battle," Lalonde said. "So, we win the special teams battle tonight and it gives us an opportunity and overtime and obviously, a point on the road."

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

They haven't won a game since they played the Tampa Bay Lightning on Dec. 6; now the Wings face the Bolts Wednesday on a six-game winless streak. The Wings' 4-3 overtime loss against the Washington Capitals was something to build on — but ultimately it was bit tiresome to yet again explain falling a point short.

"It's really frustrating," defenseman Moritz Seider said after the game at Capital One Arena. "We want to win every single game. It's frustrating."...

"We played much more to our identity," captain Dylan Larkin said. "We were hard to play against, we forechecked hard, we battled. It goes to overtime, we don't get the extra point. It's frustrating, but we are trying not to get too down on this effort because we feel it was a positive effort."

Larkin had a hand in David Perron's goal, which gave the Wings a 1-0 lead. Oskar Sundqvist made it 2-0 before the first period ended. Even after giving up two goals 11 seconds apart in the second period to Nic Dowd (Lalonde said afterwards the Wings were adamant the puck hit the netting on the second one before going in, but didn't have a conclusive replay available), Lucas Raymond scored early in the third period to make it 3-2.

"I think we showed a lot of will, a lot of compete," Seider said. "We won a lot of battles, which wasn't the case in the last game, so there are a lot of positive to take away. Our PK was really solid against one of the top power plays in the league, and we found a way to contribute on our power play."
