The Detroit Red Wings should really consider winning this game.

That’s not to say the Wild Card squad hasn’t been trying. This is playoff hockey. Of course the Wings have been trying. They wouldn’t have brawled with what appeared to be the entire Tampa Bay roster on Friday night if they weren’t..

But Detroit is still facing a two-game deficit heading back to home ice on Sunday afternoon and another loss in Game 3 would make this an all-but-impossible hill to climb back up.

In other words, the Red Wings should probably try to win. And slow down Tampa’s top line. But mostly win.
