Red Wings fall to Panthers 6-3 to end Florida road trip

 3 GOALS  6
 2/7  POWER PLAY  2/4
 22  FACE OFF WINS  32
 21  HITS  20
 39  SHOTS ON GOAL  33


The good guys had the first seven shots on goal with no luck putting it in the back of the net. With Jimmy Howard in goal, the Panthers took a quick lead, getting three goals in a three minute span and seemed to feed off of the energy for the remainder of the first period. The Wings were able to get one on the board as Dylan Larkin buried his 16th goal of the season with 5.5 seconds left in the 1st on the power play, past Panthers net minder Roberto Luongo.


Things heated up in the second! Fast-paced and good shots were coming from every direction. Just over a minute in and Larkin got his second goal of the game, a true seeing-eye goal. The Red Wings stayed strong and killed off a Panthers power play. Shortly thereafter, the Panthers tallied their fourth goal, but not without a challenge from coach Blashill for goalie interference. Danny DeKeyser took a high-stick to the face, sending Jaromir Jagr to the box to serve a double-minor. The Red Wings would have some carry-over time on the power play to begin the third.


The Wings wouldn’t manage to capitalize on the extended power play time. Howard tried his best to stay strong in the net, but allowed the Panthers to put their fifth goal behind him on a power play. Unexpectedly, Blashill pulled Howard with 8:45 left. As a result, Mike Green tallied his third goal of the season on the power play. The Panthers scored their sixth goal on an empty net as Blashill attempted yet again to pull Howard and get the extra skater on the ice. Detroit would get their seventh power play of the game due to the Panthers having too many men on the ice. Just before the puck dropped to begin the man-advantage for Detroit, two octopi were thrown on the ice. Unfortunately, that didn’t bring any luck as the Panthers cruised toward a final score of 6-3.

What’s next?

The Red Wings will get back on the ice Saturday, for game one of a five-game home-stand, against the New York Islanders at 2:00 pm.
