Takeaways From Detroit Red Wings Overtime Loss to Ottawa

Takeaways vs. Ottawa

The Detroit Red Wings took on the Ottawa Senators today to open the Global Series, and they fought back to earn a point but lost in overtime 5-4. The Red Wings head to head with the Senators are now 1-0-1 after they beat them 5-2 back on October 21st.

Another Awful First

The Red Wings offense came out rolling but couldn’t get anything past Joonas Korpisalo as he stopped all 14 shots from the Red Wings offense in the period. Every time the Red Wings had a chance, they couldn’t get one to the back of the net. The Senators seemed to go right down the other end and be able to put one home as they scored three goals on nine shots in the first 20 minutes.

Reimer and Defense Looked Awful Early

Red Wings starting goalie Ville Husso flew back on Monday for the birth of his daughter, and James Reimer got the starting nod against the Senators, and he did so well. He gave up three goals on nine shots in the first period, granted a few of those goals fell on the defense, leaving him out to dry, especially the second goal by Brady Tkachuk, which fell on Ben Chiarot as he just let Tim Stutzle pass the puck cleanly across the ice to Tkachuk and he tucked it in. Reimer did rebound after the rough start and allowed the Red Wings to get back into it; he allowed two goals on 25 shots, including overtime.

First Line Showed Up

Lucas Raymond got the first goal for the Red Wings to get them on the board, and with that goal, Raymond has scored two goals in the last two games and has four goals in his previous seven games. Alex DeBrincat also got a goal to cut it to a one-score game in the second period, which, like Raymond, is his second goal in as many games.

Gostisbehere continues to impresss

Today, Shayne Gostisbehere recorded three points, coming on a goal and two assists, and finished as a plus-two. On the season now, in 15 games, he has 12 points on four goals and eight assists and is a -4.

Tkachuk is a Red Wing Killer

In 17 games against the Red Wings, he has 12 points on seven goals and five assists. Last and this season, he has eight points on four goals and four assists, including today when he had two goals in the first period to give the Senators an early lead.

Red Wings have No Quit

Despite going down 3-0 in the first and at one point 4-0 in the second period, the Red Wings scored four unanswered goals before the horn in the second period to tie things up. They ultimately got a point, forcing overtime, but couldn’t get the second point.

Next Up:

The Detroit Red Wings will face off against the Toronto Maple Leafs tomorrow afternoon in an Original Six matchup in Sweden in a must-win game, with Toronto only one point back of Detroit and have a game in hand. The puck drop set for tomorrow is set for 2:00 PM, and it will also be the debut of Alex Lyon for Detroit.
