Wrapping Up A Win In Buffalo

11/07/2021 at 1:44am EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Tyler Bertuzzi made sure the Red Wings wouldn't lose Saturday.

Bertuzzi scored two goals late in the third period to tie it, then fed Moritz Seider in overtime for Seider's first NHL goal as the Red Wings rallied for a 4-3 victory in Buffalo.

Seider took Bertuzzi's pass, drove to the net, and flipped a shot over goaltender Dustin Tokarski at 2 minutes, 45 seconds of overtime.

"To dig in there late was huge, led by Tyler Bertuzzi," coach Jeff Blashill said. "He made sure we dug in and we found a way to come back and that's big. I don't know if he gets as much due all the time for as good a player he is. He's made an impact on the games he's played this season for sure, and tonight he made an impact."...

"I was just trying to protect the puck and take it toward the net," Seider said. "I don't know if the goalie was cheating short side, but I saw a little hole and luckily it went in."

Ending the losing streak was huge for the Wings, who didn't play well in the last two losses in Montreal and Boston.

"It was real good to bounce back," Seider said. "We had a couple of tough ones on the road, not a great performance in Montreal and Boston, so it was good to finish the trip strong and now get some points at home during the next four games."

Said Blashill: "It was big. Every win in this league is big, but being down 3-1 after a number of losses in a row, and tough performances, you start to lose your confidence a little bit."

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
