Postgame Thoughts: Red Wings @ Wild

I got back just in time to see the game-winner. Caught the rest on the radio.

First off, I’ve gotta say, the Minnesota radio guys are really good. Nice kind of conversational flow, came across like Ken Kal and Paul Woods but without Kal’s squeaking.

Since I didn’t see any of it (until the end), I’ll just comment on the feel of the game.

It sounded like the Wings got caught on the two Minnesota goals but otherwise pretty much controlled the game. Shots being 41-14 is just unreal. Almost hate to see Josh Harding come back from a year off due to injury and still lose after a great game like that.

All three Wings goals were the second goal of the season for the scorers, breaking a streak that saw the first ten goals of the season scored by ten different players.

I’ll try to catch a replay but overall, it’s great to see the Wings stick with it and rally. It’s the first time they’ve trailed this season and it’s good to know they’ve got the mental toughness to come back when they have to.
