Make no mistake, the story of the night for the Wings was Ty Conklin.
The Eurotwins being reunited so quickly and all that is interesting but that doesn’t even happen if Conklin hadn’t kept Detroit in the game early. No matter that Johan Franzen was picked as it, Conklin was the first star of the game.
That said, it was nice to see the Wings pick up steam as the game went on. They shouldn’t have had to, but they did do a great job of turning things around after the slow start.
Not a great second game of the season but there is good to take away from it. And a win is always a win.
