Red Wings lose 5th consecutive road game, 5-2
Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock isn't convinced his team is as bad as it has sometimes looked.
The Red Wings lost their fifth consecutive road game, falling 5-2 to the San Jose Sharks. It was also Detroit's fifth consecutive loss to the Sharks.
“It's not like they dominated us. We break down enough and we're not scoring easy,'' Babcock said. “When you're not scoring easy you can't make mistakes like that defensively. “We got to sit down tomorrow, we got to have a discussion as a group.''
One bright spot: Niklas Kronwall and Danny Cleary scored power-play goals, ending Detroit's 0-for-16 power-play slump.
