Red Wings Blanked by Wild, Drop Fourth Straight

The Detroit Red Wings lost their fourth consecutive game Saturday night, a 1-0 shutout by the Minnesota Wild.

Goaltender Josh Harding stopped all 36 shots Detroit threw at him to earn the win, with the one goal that Jimmy Howard allowed on twenty shots being all the Wild needed.

Dany Heatley scored the game's only goal midway through the opening period, snapping a shot past Howard on a two-on-one..

The Red Wings look to snap their slump on Tuesday when they host the Wild in the back end of this home-and-home series.

The Red Wings visit the Wild for the first game of a home-and-home series, still looking to snap their losing skid.

Jimmy Howard gets the start for the second night in a row and Cory Emmerton is back in the lineup for Patrick Eaves.

Fabian Brunnstrom (who was waived earlier today) and Mike Commodore are the other healthy scratches.

Game time is 8:00 with FSD carrying the TV.

I expect to miss this one as we're hosting a Halloween party tonight. Oddly, the two games at Minnesota are the only ones I've missed this season.

I just want a solid performance and a win to go with it. Is that too much to ask?

It's still shocking to see goals get called back against other teams. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

About time we get a break! Especially after what was called back last night. We are playing tired and we look like we have zero gas in the tank. Too many odd man rushes...

That was a great save by Harding. But whoever shot that should have put it higher.

"The following silence is brought to you by Mickey Redmond" I think that sums everything up pretty well.

Agreed. I don't have much on this one other than I'm glad I brought a pillow.

A lot of loose sticks tonight.

And we get shutout for the fourth loss in a row... <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

It's time to break out the superstitions or sacrifice something to get the Wings to win again. I mean the Leafs are second in the league right now, something is obviously not right <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

Caught a decent amount of this one out of the corner of my eye with no sound. The numbers look better than the game did. Lots of Detroit shots but not a lot of real chances. Not going to end a losing streak without getting rebound chances.
