The numerous Toronto Maple Leafs fans had more fun Saturday than the numerous Red Wings fans.
The Leafs used a three-goal third period to defeat the Wings, 5-2, and send the Toronto faithful at Little Caesars Arena home happy.
But it was more than simply the goals, said Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill, who felt the Leafs did something the Wings need to do consistently to have a chance of being successful.
“They were really competitive tonight, they outworked us,” Blashill said. “We have to make sure we outcompete and outwork teams. We didn’t outcompete and outwork them tonight.”
