Detroit's November: No Cinderella Story
Maybe their slow start was a result of this veteran squad not getting much time off after two straight runs to the finals. Maybe this missed Marian Hossa, Mikael Samuelsson, Jiri Hudler and Tomas Kopecky more than anyone expected.
Whatever the reason, happy days are here again for Detroit.
Tonight, Henrik Zetterberg put on a show. Hank had three goals and two assists in the Red Wings' 7-4 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.
November has been kind to the Wings. Former captain SteveYzerman was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Future Hall of Famer, and current captain, Nicklas Lidstrom was honored by the NHL in a pre-game ceremony for reaching 1,000 points... and The team has now won three straight and five of their six games this month.
