On the Wings: Wings 2, Wild 4

I was able to watch some of this game tonight (2nd period) on OLN.If you are a Red Wings fan, you will want to lose yourself on this page. Matt Saler has put together a very thorough and timely account of the team. Here's a snip of his game summary:
The Wings began January very much on the wrong foot, losing 4-2 in un-inspiring fashion to Minnesota in front of their home fans. Detroit looked flat for the majority of the night and were out-hustled and out-worked by the Wild all night, despite finishing the game with a season-high 45 shots.

Chris Osgood again made the start for the Wings and played well, though two of the three goals he allowed were fairly weak. He had little chance on the first, however, which came from the slot off a quick centering pass from behind the net. Andrei Zyuzin was left all along out front and was handed an easy one-timer goal by the Red Wing defense at 5:55 of the first period.

The Wild scored again a little over a minute later, this time from Filip Kuba, who took a shot from the point. The goal came soon after a defensive-zone faceoff for the Wings and immediately after a television break so it's not like they didn't have time to prepare.

Being outside the Detroit media market as I am, Matt's site is a daily read for me to keep up with things happening in Hockeytown. Thanks Matt.
