from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Painful," coach Derek Lalonde said. "We got exactly what we deserved in the third (period).
"There is some will within our team, and we'll probably look at that (third) period analytically and it's one of our better periods, (but) the inability to extend our lead an get that fourth goal, and we had a ton of chances, but it's more about keeping our lead.
"I told the guys after the will is there and the want is there, it's just executing and managing your game. We didn't do that in the third period."
from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
"It doesn’t feel good," Dylan Larkin said. "We let our foot off the gas. They came out to play in the third and we didn’t."
Larkin missed part of the first period after getting knocked over from behind. He returned to finish the game and said afterwards that he was "OK," but Lalonde noted Larkin appeared to be bothered by upper-body pain and that he will be re-evaluated Saturday. The Wings next play Sunday at home against the Anaheim Ducks....
"It hurts a lot, especially against them," Kubalik said. "We did a pretty good job half the game, then we stopped doing what we are supposed to do. They got energy from that, got a goal on our power play. It’s a big lesson and we have to learn from it.
"We have to battle through and find a way to get it back on Sunday."
