Maybe they’re jet legged, or maybe they’re distracted by the shiny chrome helmets their hosts are wearing. Either way, the Detroit Red Wings put on a 1st period performance for the ages tonight in Los Angeles – and not in a good way.
The Red Wings, who struggle routinely to get 25 shots in an entire game, gave up 27 shots in the 1st period to the Los Angeles Kings tonight at Crypto.com Arena while only firing two on goaltender Cal Petersen themselves.
Well, if you stayed up for this one, your first-period reward was seeing the Red Wings get positively flattened in the first period. Kings outshot Detroit 27-1 (they actually subtracted a shot late in the period), and lead 2-0. Would be 3-0 if not for an early overturned one.Featured Videos
