Blues' power-play goals sting Red Wings; Lions have bigger worries than penalties
An "all-in" mentality is one reason the St. Louis Blues have beaten the Detroit Red Wings twice this season, MLive.com reports.
The Blues scored two power-plays goals Tuesday in a 3-2 victory against the visiting Wings, and have held Detroit to two goals in the two games.
"When you play Detroit ... if you’re just a little bit in, they push you right out," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. "The thing that has impressed me is that for two games now, we’ve had an all-in mentality and we’ve been competitive against them and that’s a really good sign."
The Blues are 9-2-3 since Hitchcock took over the team earlier this season.
