Well, no news here. Your Detroit Red Wings lost again. This time, in overtime against the Boston Bruins.
The Wings looked good to start the game, keeping the Bruins to just two shots on goal in the first period. Halfway through the second period, the game was at a deadlock. That was when Tomas Tatar put the Wings up 1-0 on the power play.
After Boston tied things up in the third, Detroit took the lead on a very pretty shorthanded goal from Dylan Larkin, aka D-Boss. Check it out:

Jimmy Howard kept the Wings ahead until late into the third. But after Boston pulled their goalie, Howard gave up the game-tying goal with 1:26 left in the game. So, we headed into overtime 2-2.
It should come as no surprise that Detroit quickly gave up the game-winning goal, losing 3-2 in OT. This is the Wings 10th loss in 11 games, bringing their record to 11-13-7. Howard stopped 29 of the 32 shots on goal.
Next up, the Red Wings take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday at home at 7:30 p.m. (ET).
ULTIMATUM? Ken Holland to determine Wings future over next few weeks
Apparently, Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland isn’t messing around, and appears to be backing off his “less is more exciting” mantra.
According to John Niyo of The Detroit Free Press, Holland indicated that the next few weeks of Detroit’s play will determine the appropriate course of action he’ll be taking in terms of whether or not the team will be looking to sell off their pieces in a rebuilding process.
