After several of the Red Wings' losses this season I've had a hard time explaining what went wrong. Tonight feels like another one of those nights.
Can it really be as simple as Detroit not playing hard enough? I find that hard to believe but it seems to be the case.
The Wings defense has been a step behind, their goaltending has been a little slow, and their shots are just a little off.
For those counting, that's more than one thing.
So, yeah, in general the Wings have a lot to work on. They're still winning games so I'm not going to flip out just yet, I'm just surprised that this kind of play has continued to the quarter point of the season.
