Derek Lalonde feels like Detroit Red Wings should have beaten Panthers

In a game that saw the Detroit Red Wings coming off strong offensive performances, they were left frustrated as they faced off against the Florida Panthers. The night ended with a 2-0 shutout loss for the Red Wings, and head coach Derek Lalonde couldn’t help but feel like they should have come out on top.

What did Derek Lalonde Say?

The Red Wings’ offensive prowess came to a standstill on Thursday night as Panthers’ goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky blanked them, resulting in a 2-0 defeat at Little Caesars Arena. Despite the best efforts of Red Wings’ veteran goalie James Reimer, who made 25 saves, it wasn’t enough to secure a victory.

“His first period was huge,” Lalonde said about Reimer. “They had some really good looks. I mean, his numbers are going to be astronomical. It’s very unfortunate we didn’t give him any goals tonight.”

Lalonde noted that it wasn’t necessarily the Panthers’ dominant performance but rather a night where Detroit struggled to find the back of the net.

“We just didn’t find one tonight,” Red Wings head coach Derek Lalonde said. “I don’t know if it was so much their game. They’re a team that can create and score. I think both teams would be happy with their penalty kill and 5-on-5 (play). It’s a one-goal game.”

Lalonde acknowledged that it was a night of missed opportunities for the Red Wings, where the outcome could have been different if a few bounces had gone their way.

“I’ll have to watch it back,” Lalonde said. “Just one of those nights where obviously we hit a couple posts. It feels like this could have been a three-point game, but it wasn’t.”
