Red Wings Win Over The Canadiens In A Comeback, But They Are Out Of The Playoff Race

Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings defeated the Montreal Canadiens 5–4 in a shootout on Tuesday at Bell Centre, but their attempt to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs was unsuccessful. on five seconds remaining in the third quarter, David Perron tied the game at four on a slap shot from the point through traffic. After the Washington Capitals defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 to secure the second wild card into the Eastern Conference, Detroit’s dreams of making the playoffs were short-lived. Dylan Larkin, the captain of the Red Wings, found out they were eliminated “just before the shootout.” Larkin said, “It’s gutting and hard.” “Just seeing it finish makes us here really sad. We have an amazing bunch of guys, and it has been a terrific year full of fun, so it is extremely difficult and sad to see it end like that.”

Perron From Red Wings Said “It Stings A Lot”

James Reimer made 29 saves for Detroit (41-32-9) as they advanced to OT in all four of their games (2-0-2). Moritz Seider, Joe Veleno, and Daniel Sprong scored for the team.

It’s absurd. Naturally, that stings a lot,” Perron remarked. “You check the timer, and there are seven seconds left to score the goal. In the shootout, Detroit’s second consecutive comeback victory over Montreal was secured by Patrick Kane on their third try. Kane admitted, “I didn’t know fully; I think some of the other guys knew.” “I assumed there wasn’t too much to celebrate because even at the end, it didn’t seem like there was much of a reaction coming off the bench.”
