The Detroit Red Wings head to Ottawa tonight to face the Senators. The Red Wings are now on the road for seven straight games.
The Detroit Red Wings lost at home for the seventh time in nine games on Tuesday to the Buffalo Sabres. They lost 4-3 after being down 2-0 and 3-1. After being down 2-0 after the first period, Henrik Zetterberg would cut the lead in half but not even a minute a later Jack Eichel would give the Sabres a two goal lead again.
Drew Miller would get the Red Wings back to within one and that was how the second period ended.Thomas Vanek would tie the game early in the third period but like clockwork Evander Kane would break that tie just two minutes later. The Red Wings would lose the game 4-3. Petr Mrazek allowed four goals and he admits he has to be better.
Petr Mrazek has really struggled this month. Since giving up two goals on December 1st to the Florida Panthers, Mrazek has allowed three goals or more in six straight games.Mrazek now has a goals against average of over three now. If the Red Wings are to make the playoffs, Mrazek has to turn his game around.
As of this writing, no starter has been announced for tonight’s game. It will be interesting to see if Jeff Blashill gives Mrazek time to get back on track. Unfortunately time is running out for the Red Wings.
