Incredibly balanced Detroit Red Wings scoring has led to early season success!
Due to remarkably balanced contributions from across the lineup, the Detroit Red Wings have already secured two victories in their initial three games of the new season. Notably, several newcomers to the team, including Alex DeBrincat, J.T. Compher, Daniel Sprong, and Shayne Gostisbehere, have all notched their first goals. Furthermore, it was this collective offensive effort that propelled the team to a commanding 4-0 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets in their most recent game.
Several Red Wings players have found the scoresheet
The Detroit Red Wings are off to an impressive start with a total of three goals from DeBrincat in just two games, while Sprong has notched two goals. Additionally, Lucas Raymond and, in last night's game, Andrew Copp, Michael Rasmussen, and Dylan Larkin, all opened their goal accounts for the season, alongside Gostisbehere.
Derek Lalonde praised the balanced offensive attack
“Balanced offense through our lineup, even from our back end,” coach Derek Lalonde said. “Last night was the perfect example. Did not play a very good first period but found a goal, a great play by Joe (Veleno), get a goal from our blue line with Ghost (Shayne Gostisbehere) and found ourselves up 1-0 and got our game in order, and then the balanced scoring again. You want to try to find offense wherever you can and when you get it throughout your lineup that’s certainly a positive.”
In addition, veteran forward David Perron understands the importance of maintaining the current scoring momentum.
“We got to keep doing that,” David Perron said. “I don’t think we were playing that well after one yesterday and we kind of took over in the second and the third. It’s fun to see we were able to put them away. We didn’t wait. Maybe they get one early in the second and it changes the whole flow of the game and we play a tight game. You need those types of games with 10, 6, 7,8 minutes left in the third, you know you’ve got this if you just play the right way.”
