Red Wings Continue to Start Slow
All season long, the Detroit Red Wings have had a bad habit of getting off to slow starts. It cost them again last night. The Red Wings fell behind and couldn’t catch up in a lackluster 4 – 1 loss to the Nashville Predators at Joe Louis Arena, the same team that shut them out Saturday night. The Red Wings avoided getting shut out for the third time in four games late in the second when defenseman Ruslan Salei scored his first goal this season in his 53rd game with Detroit.
