Red Wings overnight report: on the Wings-Stars prospect tourney game and Friday’s Wings happenings

As noted in the "initial thoughts and audio" post, the Red Wings prospects' 4-2 victory over the Dallas Stars didn't secure the team a berth in the prospect tournament final, but it was as close to a giant-slaying as you could get.
