Detroit Red Wings lose

The Red Wings gave up a pair of 3rd period goals

Russian forward Artemi Panarin, known for his sharpshooting skills, continued his impressive streak at the start of the season, scoring in the 2nd period by lifting a shot over Red Wings' goaltender Ville Husso. However, Detroit quickly responded, taking the lead with goals from Mortiz Seider and Robby Fabbri within a mere 23 seconds.

New York managed to level the score in the 3rd period, courtesy of K'Andre Miller, setting the stage for forward Jimmy Vesey to claim the spotlight. Vesey skillfully redirected the puck into the net from midair, and despite undergoing a video review, his goal stood, securing the win.

Robby Fabbri injury

Fabbri, who scored his 5th goal of the season, would later state that to not secure any points from the trip to New York wasn't what his team had in mind.

“It's a tough one to swallow,” he said. “A lapse of judgement by our (line) there at the end and it's unacceptable to come away with at least a point.”

“It's really frustrating right now, especially after the game, the emotions are high as they should be,” said Seider. “We wanted to come out here and show we're a better team than last time and we showed that. But over 60 minutes, they scored more goals than we did and that's frustrating right now.”
