Aside from the first five to ten minutes, this might have been the Red Wings' strongest game of the season.
Their defense (again, aside from the start) was rock solid and Chris Osgood made the stops he had to.
Ken and Mickey mentioned it but the breakout passes started getting too cute late in the third. There were also a lot of wasted shots, so it's not as though there aren't still things to work on, but this was definitely a step forward if the Red Wings can build on it.
