The Detroit Red Wings’ sputtering offense looked a little more lively for at least one night, as they knocked around the free-falling Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 on Saturday.
Detroit’s usual suspects dominated the game, as Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg and Niklas Kronwall all had three points while Jimmy Howard stopped 32 out of 34 shots. The most heartening thing might be that Daniel Alfredsson collected three assists, as the 40-year-old started the season with a whimper.
Beyond that, the whole “sooner or later you might score more than a goal or two after firing 30+ shots” thing might work their way. Still, there’s no denying that it isn’t very sunny in Philadelphia.
