Postgame: Canadiens @ Red Wings – 3/24

The Red Wings probably don’t deserve to make the playoffs. I don’t even want to talk about how they nearly blew a 4-0 lead heading into the third period against the Canadiens tonight.

Instead, I want to talk about the best image of the season.

Anthony Mantha, playing in his first-ever home game for the Detroit Red Wings, scores his first career NHL goals.

In the stands is his grandfather, former Canadien and Red Wing Andre Pronovost. Seventy-nine years old. With tears in his eyes.

It was really a beautiful sight.
