Riley Sheahan scored the game winning goal late in the third period on a great pass from Dylan Larkin and the Detroit Red Wings won their 4 straight games, defeating the Anaheim Ducks 2-1.
"Just kind of a broken play," Sheahan said. "We had a chance to get some possession in the O-zone. Larks made a great pass and I don't think the goalie was really ready for it."
Tomas Tatar scored the other goal for the Wings and Petr Mrazek was solid once again making 30 saves. Although a goaltender usually makes his luck, the Ducks had at least three shots hit the post in this contest.
Head coach Jeff Blashill spoke about his team's winning streak:
"Because of our veteran leadership we're a team that can win on the road," Blashill said. "When momentum starts going the other way you got to really play smart hockey, and I think our guys did that tonight."
The Red Wings can extend their longest winning streak of the season when they visit the Los Angeles Kings on Monday.
