The Red Wings played the remainder of the game with five defensemen, including three rookies.“All we can do is focus on making sure that we’re getting better here, and I thought again there was a lot of things we did good,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. “We’ve got to make sure we repeat a lot of that performance tomorrow night and find a way to score a bit more.”Kronwall, 37, was second on the team in scoring among defenseman last season with 27 points (four goals, 23 assists).

Washington was far from dominant, but the Capitals created the game’s best scoring chance and that was enough.”I know they had a lot of shots, but this was a pretty easy game,” Grubauer said. ”The guys kept the front of the net clear, so I could see everything they were taking.”Washington is last in the NHL in shots per game http://www.flyersshoponline.com/authentic-ivan-provorov-jersey , but the Capitals have won six of seven and lead Pittsburgh and Columbus by four points atop the Metropolitan Division as the regular season winds down.Washington has turned increasingly to Grubauer of late after Braden Holtby struggled in February and at the beginning of March.

I needed it.”Howard was indeed expecting a pass.”The way Vrana opened up for the one-timer, I was expecting at least one pass,” Howard said. ”He caught me by surprise there.”Detroit has lost 11 of 12 and was mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. The Red Wings will miss the postseason for a second consecutive season.The Red Wings had a goal called back for goalie interference in the first period – replays showed Tyler Bertuzzi appearing to make contact with Grubauer in front of the net.

Detroit had a great game plan and really used their speed to box us up Jakub Voracek Jersey Kids ,” Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. ”We were in a lot of tough spots, but Gru kept making the big saves we needed. We just need to score a few more goals for him.”Andreas Athanasiou had a breakaway in the third, but couldn’t beat Grubauer .

He’s played through it. We knew at some point that this was inevitable,” coach Jeff Blashill said. ”I know there was some wondering why Green wasn’t traded.
