The Detroit Red Wings dropped another shoot out loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs, 2-1. The Wings snapped a three-game winning streak at Joe Louis Arena but earned a point to get to 17-6-6 in the 2014 season.

The Wings notched their 40th point of the season and are at the top of the Eastern Conference. Young guys on the team such as Tomas Tatar, Tomas Jurco, and Gustav Nyquist continue to step up for Detroit.

However, there has been a lot of production from a variety of lines. Points have been evenly distributed so far this season and has allowed Detroit to complete several come from behind victories.

Last night, Gus Nyquist put the Wings up early against their Atlantic rivals, the Tornoto Maple Leafs. However, a defensive breakdown resulted in a Phil Kessel goal in the third period to tie the game.

Red Wings shootout struggles continued as Pavel Datsyuk scored the only goal. Both Nyquist and Tatar were denied respectively. Jimmy Howard, who has been outstanding this season for the Red Wings, gave up two goals in the shootout. Both goals were through his five-hole and concerns about the Wings  performance during shootouts needs to be addressed.
