Red Wings action

The greatest appreciation of how far the Detroit Red Wings have come this season was delivered by those they vanquished Tuesday at Little Caesars Arena.

“They’re as good as any team in the National Hockey League,” Washington coach Spencer Carbery said after the Red Wings pinned an 8-3 loss to the Capitals.

Bob Duff’s Hockey Now story points out that 13 different Red Wings had a point during the victory. Detroit owns a six-game winning streak. The team is only two points behind Toronto for third place in the Atlantic Division.

“Right from the start, you could see the talent through their lineup and through their roster and the plays they make,” Carbery said. “With the finish they had, it was on full display.”
