“Unfortunately, they got a lucky, lucky bounce at the end, but overall it was a really good effort,” said Husso. “There were a couple of shots from the blue line and all the angles, and guys boxed out well. It was not easy, but one of the nicer nights to play as a goalie.”

The Red Wings' defense and Husso's performance gave them the edge in this matchup against the struggling Golden Knights. The Red Wings are closer to the bottom of the Atlantic Division standings, but they played sharper in this game and used pinpoint passing to set up all three goals.
