Sports: Red Wings Lost 5th Straight, 4-3 to Devils
The Red Wings lost to the New Jersey Devils 4-3. Detroit falls a game under .500 on the season and has lost five in a row. The Devils jumped off to a 2-0 lead in the first few minutes. Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg scored with 1:47 remaining in the second, to make it 2-1. But a couple minutes later the Devils scored again on a short-handed goal and went up 4-1 on another goal minus a skater in the 3rd. Detroit pulled within a score on goals from Tomas Tatar and Nick Jensen. It was Jensen’s first NHL goal. Detroit had an extra skater with 2:16 left and pulled Jared Coreau about a minute later, but it couldn't take advantage of the opportunity to extend the game to overtime. Detroit hosts the New York Islanders on Friday.
