This is the second installment of a three part series where I will look at the three segments of the Wings roster, and what moves they might make in the off-season to shape their lineup. On Saturday, I walked you through the potential candidates to become Jimmy Howard’s understudy. Today, the defense is under the microscope.
What looked like a walk in the park turned into a nail biter, but the Wings held on for victory to take a well-earned 2-0 lead in the series. Phoenix, who looked over-matched for the first two periods, got themselves back into the game with an opportunistic power play, aided by some friendly calls by the men in stripes.
