Chicago at Detroit (4/8/11)

The Red Wings put forth another disappointing performance at home tonight. The Blackhawks were in town and fighting for their spot in the playoffs. The Red Wings were also there. The goalies were Jimmy Howard and Corey Crawford.

The Wings were behind by a goal before the first 30 seconds were up. It just got worse from there. They gave up three goals in the first period and were outshot 13 to 5. They turned the puck over time after time in their own zone and they just looked sloppy and slow.

They finally scored a goal at the very end of the second period. They came to life a little bit in the third and outshot the Hawks by a wide enough margin that the shot totals for the game ended up nearly even.

It was too little, too late however. The Red Wings scored once more near the end of the game but weren’t able to come closer than two goals behind.

The Hawks won the game 4 to 2. The Red Wings will have a chance for redemption on Sunday in their final game of the season. This is a bad time to start sagging. There just isn’t any urgency in the Wings’ game right now. It’s understandable, but hopefully they’ll start to feel the urgency quickly once the playoffs start.

This 4-2 loss brings us to:
102 points
