Really solid win and really solid effort by the Wings tonight. Good to see after their struggles thus far this season.
As I said at the end of the second, Detroit could have given up or gotten frustrated when Kari Lehtonen was holding them off the board and a defensive breakdown led to a Dallas goal. They kept up the pressure, though, and broke through in a big way.
Unfortunately, they’ve bought themselves some skepticism, so I’ll temper my excitement with concern over whether or not they can do this consistently. St. Louis is up on Friday and that will be a pretty big test.
