The winter of 3-2 continues for the Detroit Red Wings, and it is truly a winter of discontent for them.
Detroit coach Jeff Blashill likes to describe NHL games as a race to three, and lately, his team is consistently losing that race. As they prepare for Saturday's home date against the Carolina Hurricanes, the Wings have lost a trio of consecutive games by a final score of 3-2, and two of them were absolute heartbreakers.
Thursday, Marco Scandella scored with 0.2 seconds left in overtime to give the Buffalo Sabres a 3-2 verdict over Detroit. On Sunday, the Wings (24-26-10) fell to the Toronto Maple Leafs when Auston Matthews snapped a 2-2 with 30.2 seconds left in regulation.
