Videos- Wrapping Up A Win Over The Anaheim Ducks

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

There was sneaking suspicion this game was going to go like this.

The Anaheim Ducks had lost 11 consecutive games, so, they weren't exactly on a wave of momentum.

And, maybe as expected, Detroit put Anaheim in position to finally steal a victory until a big third period carried the Red Wings to a 3-1 victory Tuesday at Little Caesars Arena.

Goals from Anthony Mantha, Gustav Nyquist and Darren Helm, plus 23 saves from goaltender Jimmy Howard, gave the Wings their second consecutive victory and first back-to-back wins since Nov. 28 and Dec. 1 against St. Louis and Boston.

“In the last month we’ve played good hockey, but at the end of the day this league is about results,” said veteran forward Thomas Vanek, who spoke up after two periods in the Wings’ locker room. “That was the only message. We haven’t played our best, it’s 1-0 (the Wings trailing), so let’s go out and grab those points.

“It’s nice when you don’t play your best you want to get results; that’s what the league is all about.”
