Red Wings explode offensively in wild 7-5 victory over Winnipeg

Detroit – The Detroit Red Wings haven’t scored many goals lately but sure did Tuesday, and needed them all.

The Wings defeated the hard-charging and explosive Winnipeg Jets 7-5 to end a three-game losing streak.

After only scoring four goals during those three losses, the Wings exploded for three goals in the first period then had to keep adding whenever they could against the Jets.

It wasn’t a piece of art by any stretch, but the Wings will take the needed victory.

“It never felt comfortable,” coach Derek Lalonde said. “Just because the way we were playing. We had no gas, we were slow, we were tired. We had mental mistakes, tired mistakes. It was frustrating because of how good our five-on-five play was, but not (Tuesday ).

“Hopefully it was a one-off and we’ll address some things and again, it’s easy to correct some things with wins.”
