FINISH STRONG The Detroit Red Wings have to show Steve Yzerman in the last 10 games
WIN ON THURSDAY: Jake Walman’s goal with 3.2 seconds remaining gave the Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.
Game Notes: It’s a rehash of one of the Wings’ wildest wins of the season, a 7-5 slugfest on January 10 at Little Caesars Arena. The Wings took a 3-0 lead in the first half before the Jets reduced it to a one-goal game midway through the second half. From there, the Wings and Jets traded goals with goalies Connor Hellebuyck – six goals allowed on 22 shots – and Ville Husso – five goals allowed on 37 shots – damaging their statlines, and Wings defender Moritz Seider accumulating four assists.
It was a rare stink for Hellebuyck, the Kommerz native, who won the 2019-20 NHL’s Vezina Trophy for top goaltender and finished fourth in voting in 2020-21. In 27 games since that loss, Hellebuyck has a .909 save percentage and a 2.81 clean sheet average while going 12-14-1 for the Jets. The 29-year-old is one of the hardest-working goaltenders in the league and has led the NHL in saves for the past four seasons. (This season is his 1,641 saves only Third despite once again topping the games played.)
The four-assist game gave Seider, the reigning Calder Trophy winner as the NHL’s top rookie, two goals and 15 assists in 39 games with a minus-13 rating. Since then, however, he has netted three goals and 17 assists in just 34 games while maintaining a plus-seven rating. Overall, the nearly 22-year-old — who will be 22 this Thursday when the Wings take on the Buffalo Sabers — has 87 points in his first two seasons as a wing. It is the second-highest total by a Wings D-man in his first two seasons, behind only Nicklas Lidstrom’s 101 points from 1991-93.
After the second game of the back-to-back, the Wings have a full day to recover before taking on the playoff-tied Maple Leafs in Toronto on Sunday night and then two nights later on their Canadian road trip against the decided non- Playoff-tied Canadiens in Montreal on Tuesday. The Jets, meanwhile, have Saturday off before hosting New Jersey on Sunday night; it will be the second game of a five-game home team before they end the season away against Minnesota and Colorado.
