I’m gonna be fast because it’s late.
You don’t usually deserve to win a game where you score one fluky goal. It would have been somewhat embarrassing if Kyle Quincey‘s bouncing mess of a first-period tally was the only goal of the game.
That said, there’s a bad feeling about the Kings scoring the tying goal on their third minute of five-on-three in the game, in a game where the Wings saw no five-on-three time. There’s something that feels wrong about the Kings tying it up after Dustin Penner wasn’t called for his high hit on Brendan Smith, with a goal where the puck came free because of a trip.
The Wings may not have done enough to win this game, but it doesn’t seem like the Kings did either.
