from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
There’s been a lot of losses this season — and the Red Wings will surely have more these last couple months — but this was a particular galling one.
Twice the Wings had leads in the third period, and for stretches Friday they outplayed the Western Conference-leading Calgary Flames, only to ultimately lose 6-4.
This was fun hockey, a throwback, wide-open game to an era of hockey played long ago.
But the Wings would have simply enjoyed to have won, with a lot less fireworks.
BOX SCORE: Flames 6, Red Wings 4
The Wings led 4-3 at 8:35 of the third period when Dylan Larkin — who had one of his best games of the season — scored his 20th goal, and second of the game.
The Wings appeared to have control. But Calgary struck quickly and thoroughly, tying the score and regaining the lead on one special-teams sequence.
Below, watch the game highlights and post-game interviews.
