Red Wings vs Flames Recap: 4.17.2013

Wings fall to the Flames 3-2. We’re going to miss these two points. Actually we’ll miss all six that were available but lost to the Flames. Honestly it wasn’t for a lack of trying. The Wings had plenty of pressure, but didn’t take many shots early. Then frigging Kiprusoff played out of his damn mind the rest of the way.

More after the jump:

The line of Nyquist-Andersson-Cleary/Brunner was the best tonight. Lots of chances for Nyquist and Brunner had quite a few shots.

The second goal against Howard: I don’t know, you tell me. Ericsson puts it in his skates for some reason, Howard doesn’t know until the last minute, then kicks it in himself.

Third goal against Howard: Howard wanted some help from his D, but didn’t get any. Then when the puck did get to him, he whiffed on the clearing attempt.

Wings had plenty of chances on the powerplay, but only managed to give up a shorty.

The Detroit Red Wings have left themselves no room for error. This next game against Vancouver is huge, as are all of the games from here on out. Lose again and they're in trouble. Puck drops at 10:00 Saturday night.

Folks, it's been a rough week, for sure. Lots of bad stuff has happened to good people in the last 72 hours. Some the result of evil, some the result of tragedy. If you're reading this, you still have a pulse. Don't let this game or this season get you down. See you Saturday.
