Videos- Wrapping Up The Detroit Loss To Carolina

03/11/2020 at 3:36am EDT

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The Detroit Red Wings squandered an opportunity to gain a little more ground as search for an identity.

They coughed up a short-handed goal in the third period to the Carolina Hurricanes, a disappointing turn after showing good fight through the first two periods Tuesday on Little Caesars Arena.

The Wings (17-49-5) fought through two deficits but their failure on special teams – they went scoreless on five man advantages – led to a 5-2 loss.

With the defeat, the Wings clinched last place in the NHL. They are 23 points behind 30th-place Ottawa with 11 games remaining.

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Tuesday, the Wings entered the third period tied at 2, but Williams (8th goal) and Aho (37th goal) scored early in the third period, and Aho added his 38th on the power play, with 2:02 left to close out the scoring.

“For 40 minutes we played pretty well, real well at times,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “Obviously in the third, they out-specialty teamed us and that’s the difference in the game."...

“Going into the third it’s a 2-2 game and we had played pretty good overall,” Bernier said. “They’re a team that has capitalized all year, they don’t need a whole lot of scoring chances. They have skilled players and depth in their lineup.

“Sometimes your best penalty kill is staying out of the box.”
