After the Red Wings’ horrible performances on Wednesday and Thursday, I didn’t even bother watching on Saturday. I had family-related stuff to attend to and that was more important.
Turns out, I missed what could have been a decent game.
The Detroit News game recap doesn’t say much (it’s an AP piece) but one of the previews on their badly-formatted RSS feed says “The Edmonton Oilers took advantage of some lucky breaks Saturday night.”
If that’s to be trusted, it’s good to hear that Edmonton got scoring from luck rather than real Detroit screw-ups. Maybe it means that the Red Wings are coming back around.
