Red Wings blow four goal lead, still win in S/O over Flyers

An absolutely wild affair in Detroit tonight.



For the second time in just under a month, the Detroit Red Wings found a way to blow a four goal lead at home. However, this time around, it yielded a better result. 

Detroit ultimately prevailed over the visiting Philadelphia Flyers by a 7-6 final score via the shootout; both Lucas Raymond and Patrick Kane tallied in the skills contest for Detroit, who won for the first time in five tries.

It was Kane who scored twice in the first period for Detroit, who also got tallies from J.T. Compher, Shayne Gostisbehere and Daniel Sprong. However, the Flyers began planning the seeds of doubt in Detroit's mind with two quick goals just 24 seconds apart in the second period, cutting the lead to two. 

Garnett Hathaway deflected home his 3rd goal of the year, which was soon followed by two additional quick goals by the Flyers courtesy of Scott Laughton and Owen Tippett. But Detroit would find a way to tie the score, thanks to a shot from below the goal line from Dylan Larkin that found its way past a stunned Carter Hart. 

Hart would play the role of hero for the Flyers in overtime, making several key stops on Alex DeBrincat and Gostisbehere.  But when it was all said and done, Detroit triumphed and earned a badly-needed two points.
