Frustration boiled over during the Detroit Red Wings’ practice on Wednesday and footage of teammates Ben Chiarot and Lucas Raymond fighting went viral.

Players are especially angry as the Wings lost 7-3 to the Buffalo Sabres last night, consequently falling out of the playoff picture amid a six-game losing streak.

Chiarot and Raymond went at it, were separated by the rest of the teammates, exchanged a few words as Raymond put his helmet back on, and lined up for the following drill.

After practice, star forward Patrick Kane talked about the altercation and what it means for the Wings moving forward, per Detroit Hockey Now:

“I don’t think it’s a bad thing,” Kane said. “I’d be more worried if we were walking around here all smiles, happy and everything’s okay. I think it’s good to get a little frustrated as long as you harness it in the right way.

“Frustration can create a lot of positive energy as well, whether it’s practicing like you play, or just playing harder tomorrow.”

This could indeed be the Red Wings’ first step into getting back on track as time is running out. On Thursday night, they face the Arizona Coyotes who defeated them 4-0 last week. Detroit has 17 games remaining in their season to try to end their playoff drought.

Both Chiarot and Raymond will need to step up: amidst the losing streak, the young forward has just a goal and an assist during that time, with a minus-10 rating. As for the veteran defenseman, he has also posted a minus-10 rating while seeing his ice time drop to 17:38 per game from 19:39 per game this season until the losing streak.

The next games are crucial for the Red Wings and let’s hope they can use that frustration to get good results.
