Red Wings fans over at SBN's Winging It In Motown reacted to their team's 4-3 loss at the hands of the Philadelphia Flyers today, mostly by blaming a very, very early goal by Flyers' forward Dan Carcillo.
Just 12 seconds into Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers, a neutral-zone turnover led to the puck being on Dan Carcillo's stick to the right of Chris Osgood. He fired what appeared to be a harmless shot towards Osgood, starting his first game since January 27.
Osgood couldn't handle it.
That goal would prove to be the difference, as the Detroit Red Wings saw their 12-game point-earning streak come to an end with a 4-3 loss to a Flyers team that desperately needs any win they can get in their battle for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Meanwhile despite goals from Dan Cleary, Darren Helm, and Pavel Datsyuk, the Red Wings squander one of the two games in hand against the Nashville Predators for the fifth spot in the Western Conference.
Osgood may have made 21 saves, but it was the easy one he missed that could doom any chances for him to redeem himself in the eyes of the coaching staff. Osgood had not won a game in regulation since his 2-0 shutout of the Boston Bruins back on November 3.
