Anaheim, CA – Good work Detroit Red Wings They were decimated in a few bouts that forced them to settle into one point.
Their losing streak grew to four games after they blew a late lead and then made a turnover in overtime that saw them settle for a 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center.
“It’s tough to go down there and with one minute, 30 seconds left, they score and tie it up, and then in overtime we beat them all and they get a chance and bury it,” said Captain Dylan Larkin. . “It stings now.”
Ryan Strom scored after Tyler Bertuzzi turned the ball over behind his own goal line, spoiling a generally good performance from the wings.
“I think we put ourselves in a position where we deserve two points,” said coach Derek Lalonde. “But the way we ran the third, conceding four penalties, even the way we ran extra time – we had a really good start to our season and we’ve been competitive in this league because we’re getting off our game. Unfortunately, we got away with that a few times during that third.” Especially in overtime.”
welcome back:The wingers, energized by Joe Felino’s line, are hoping Tyler Bertuzzi can add an extra boost
Jonathan Berggren’s first NHL goal marked the first time since November 5 that the Wings scored first in a game. Michael Rasmussen added a goal in the second half, 34.3 seconds. Phil Hossu had made 27 saves when John Kellenberg scored with 46.2 seconds left.
The Wings (7-6-3) continue their run on Thursday at the San Jose Sharks and round it out on Saturday at the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Since his first conversion in his first NHL appearance in three games, Berggren has been consistent in showing that he makes the Wings better. He put them up with a goal just before halftime on Tuesday, taking a pass from Philip Hronik and lobbing the ball behind John Gibson from outside the crease, near the goal line.
“It was great to see, even though it was a loss, that Jonathan Berggren scored his first NHL goal,” said Larkin.
Berggren, in the second round of 2018, received an assist in his first game, when he set up Joe Felino. In Los Angeles, it was Bergren who scored the penalty which led to a power play goal that got the Wings into the game. Bergren was called upon to ease the loss of several skilled forwards, but even with Bertuzzi’s return, for example, Bergren remained in the line-up.
Hosu Mason McTavish robbed what was a golden opportunity from the right circle while Oscar Sundqvist was in the box checking in a cross (Earlier in the turn Sundqvist had a great chance to put the Wings ahead by two, but McTavish was quick with a shot. The slot when he got another chance The shootout fared better when Rasmussen was called upon for stumbling early in the second half, advancing into lanes and blocking shots such that Hossu only had to make one save.
The PK set was really tested midway through the third period when Moritz Seider and Lukas Raymond both took penalties, setting up a 59-second double advantage for the Ducks man. Dylan Larkin, Ben Chiarotte, and Phillip Hronk did such a good job that Hoso didn’t even have to save her. Raymond went into the box again a few minutes later, when he used his stick to slow down Jacob Silverberg and ended up losing the stick when Silverberg tried to remove the puck, ending up sending Raymond’s stick over the glass and into the stands.
“For most of the game, I thought our efforts were excellent,” said Lalonde. “We put ourselves in but we got out of our rhythm. Four penalties, and they were very bad penalties. They were all legitimate penalties. Revenge penalties, a penalty 200 feet from our net, and it took us out of the game. We had a good flow of our game over two periods and unfortunately We didn’t manage to play well for the third time.”
Sundqvist and Rasmussen (Elmer Söderblom, third member of Skyline, tackles an undisclosed injury) adjusted for penalties by setting up the Wings with a goal in the last minute of the second half. It started with Sundqvist winning a showdown against Max Jones in the right circuit in Anaheim area and getting the puck to David Peron. He found Byron Rasmussen, who walked around the net, up front and scored his second goal of the season.
