Had to let DH.N Bot kick off the game thread 'cause the Wings are unbeaten when he does.  And I probably just jinxed it.

Kyle Quincey's first goal of the season would be like that.

Really solid period, helped a lot by the pair of power plays even if they didn't score on them.  Lots of possession.  Better than the last game against LA, for sure.

Awesome PK.  Best of the season.

Lead only being one terrifies me but the Wings are playing a really efficient game, especially in the PK.  All about positioning.

Both of the penalties to put the Wings on that five-on-three were deserved (though the faceoff violation is a stupid rule), but, damn, Kings have had nothing in this game outside of their power plays.

I'm gonna be fast because it's late.

 

You don't usually deserve to win a game where you score one fluky goal.  It would have been somewhat embarrassing if Kyle Quincey's bouncing mess of a first-period tally was the only goal of the game.

 

That said, there's a bad feeling about the Kings scoring the tying goal on their third minute of five-on-three in the game, in a game where the Wings saw no five-on-three time.  There's something that feels wrong about the Kings tying it up after Dustin Penner wasn't called for his high hit on Brendan Smith, with a goal where the puck came free because of a trip.

 

The Wings may not have done enough to win this game, but it doesn't seem like the Kings did either.
