The Wings and Sabres aren’t done yet but I’m following Malik’s lead and calling this one early.
From what I understand (I haven’t actually had the game on since midway through the second) Detroit is currently losing 6-1 early in the third. Fantastic. I think we can guess how this one’s gonna end.
To me, Buffalo’s fifth goal shows just how this game went. Derek Roy drives to the net. Niklas Kronwall and Chris Osgood hold him off but the puck comes to the open side of the net. There’s no Detroit defender there. Brad Stuart stopped skating in the slot. Thomas Vanek is untouched as he puts in the rebound.
Yeah, that’s the kind of effort the Wings put forth tonight. Well done, guys.
