from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
The Detroit Red Wings were upset with Jack Hughes – and themselves.
Their Tuesday game against the New Jersey Devils at Little Caesars Arena went from ugly to uglier in the third period. Robby Fabbri limped off after a knee-on-knee collision with Hughes, and the last minute nearly degenerated into a melee after Tyler Bertuzzi put a clean hit on Hughes.
“It starts with a pretty cheap check,” Dylan Larkin said after the 4-1 loss. “We didn’t like the hit that Fabs took. Clear that he stuck his leg out, knee-on-knee, we didn’t like that. I think it’s dirty hit.”
Below, watch the questionable play hit and Jack Hughes post-game.
