I'll write up something momentarily, but...Do we call this progress? The Detroit Red Wings edged the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 in a shootout, but the Wings also went 0-for-7 on special teams, gave up 2 power play goals, surrendered a 2-1 lead...
And when Carlo Colaiacovo's shoulder hit the glass on a heavy, heavy check, he dropped his left glove and headed for the locker room looking like he'd separated his shoulder, leaving Wings fans hoping that Brian Lashoff's first goal wasn't an anomaly, and that Jonathan Ericsson gets healthy in a hurry.
Was this progress? What do you think?
Here's Lashoff's first NHL goal...He's the 126th Griffin to score an NHL goal.
Update: According to Fox Sports Detroit's John Keating, the Wings will reassess the statuses of both Jonathan Ericsson (shoulder) and Jakub Kindl (groin) in the morning. No word about Colaiacovo yet.
