To celebrate the All-Star break, I slept in so a little late with this...
from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
The Detroit Red Wings played stupid hockey, but Filip Zadina played to win.
Zadina left XCel Energy Center on Wednesday with his first career two-goal game, tallying both markers in the first period, before the Wings caved and collected a 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild. For a team as weary as the Wings – they enter the nine-day NHL All-Star break a league-worst 12-35-4 – witnessing a player vital to the rebuild turn in a such a good performance is a balm.
