Why the Red Wings endured a hectic ending but couldn’t be dissatisfied with the single point they earned in the loss…

The Detroit Red Wings faced a late start due to the NHL’s “Frozen Frenzy,” a unique event with 16 games starting just 15 minutes apart.

The game against the Seattle Kraken turned into a frenzy itself, particularly in the wild third period and overtime.

The Red Wings, despite losing to the Kraken 5-4, had several positive aspects to their game. They scored three power-play goals in the third period, including Alex DeBrincat’s ninth league-leading goal, and Dylan Larkin had an impressive three-point night, tying him for the NHL’s scoring lead with 14 points. Joe Veleno also scored his fourth goal in three games.

However, the game also had its negatives, with the Red Wings accumulating six penalties, including two crucial ones in the final four minutes of regulation, one of which led to the tying goal by the Kraken. Ville Husso’s performance in goal wasn’t at its best for some of the goals.

In the end, coach Derek Lalonde expressed satisfaction with getting a point, given the circumstances, and the Red Wings now stand at a 5-1-1 record.

Larkin expressed disappointment at losing a game they felt they should have won, but acknowledged their role in allowing the game to slip away due to late penalties.

The game also had its share of controversial moments, including a missed penalty call that irked fans and a penalty for playing without a helmet, which sparked a debate.

Despite the loss, the Red Wings’ power play continued to perform well, with a success rate of 41.4 percent. Shayne Gostisbehere played a significant role, scoring a power-play goal and contributing to two others. Gostisbehere praised the team’s overall power-play capabilities, highlighting their strengths at all positions on the ice.
