The Detroit Red Wings may be playing with Todd Bertuzzi, Pavel Datsyuk, Nicklas Lidstrom and a pair of defensemen who are missed more than we might think in Jonathan Ericsson and Jakub Kindl, and their absences played no small part in Detroit’s 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night… But there are no excuses for the Red Wings having given up 4 shorthanded goals over...
