St. Paul, Minn. — Obviously the All-Star break can’t come quick enough for the Red Wings.
For fans, too, who won’t have to watch these games for a week.
Such as Wednesday’s 4-2 loss to Minnesota in the final game before the Wings go away for a short while — though, during the second period, it appeared mentally they had already drifted away to warm-weather destinations.
The Wings were outshot 15-5 in the second period — 10-0 at one point — and saw a 2-1 lead become a 4-2 deficit.
And they never recovered.
