A rough loss for the Detroit Red Wings against the New York Islanders.
The Detroit Red Wings were seriously outplayed in the first period. The Wings were not able to capitalize on their first power play.

The Wings ended on a power play, trailing 1 to 0. SOG: 17 Islanders vs 8 Wings.

A beautiful win for the Detroit Red Wings! A 3 to 0 shutout for Jimmy Howard against the Saint Louis Blues to lead Detroit to their 12th home game win.
First Period: The first period was eventful, but not on the scoreboard. The Wings and Blues went through the entire period without scoring. The second penalty the Blues received was to Cole for a rough elbow to Abdelkader’s face. Abdelkader fell, got up and fell again. He appeared listless and headed to the “quiet” room to be evaluated for concussion-like symptoms. The period ended 0 to 0 between the two teams. SOG: Tied at 10 to 10.
