The Red Wings push to secure a post season berth for the 22nd straight year won’t get any easier after they earned only one point at home last night with a 3-to-2 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks.
Detroit has to play its next 4 games on the road while clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot in the West. Justin Abdelkader and Jakub Kindl scored the Red Wing goals in regulation time against the Sharks. Jimmy Howard stopped 28 shots in defeat. The Red Wings begin their road trip tonight at Chicago.
