Videos- Wrapping Up Detroit's 2-1 Overtime Loss To Dallas

01/27/2021 at 7:55am EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

"There are things to build on," forward Luke Glendening said. "In Chicago, we had a pretty tough time. But there are things to build on and we have to continue to get better. We weren't good enough tonight."

The Red Wings were significantly better defensively, limiting Dallas to 22 shots (the Wings only had 21 in the grinding game) and not giving the Stars much space to skate.

"We weren't very good in Chicago, it was way too wide open," said forward Vladislav Namestnikov, who scored the Wings lone goal, his first this season. "We talked about how we wanted to come out and make it hard on them and a play a tight defensive game.

"And for 60 minutes, we did that."

This time of tight, tough-minded defensive style is the type of game the Wings need to play, especially with the offense missing out of the lineup.

"It's the type of game we have to play regardless of who is in the lineup, and certainly with the people we have out of the lineup, it's critical we play that way," coach Jeff Blashill said. "If you think back to the Columbus game in overtime we won (Jan. 19), there were very few chances both ways. That's the way we'll have to play. We have to make sure we're a good team defensively that protects that critical ice and is good structurally and we get our offense having the puck more."
