Bob Duff: New Season, More Of The Same?
Two games into the NHL regular season, the signposts are familiar ones to the Detroit Red Wings. An overtime loss in Game 1 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Wings were 3-12 in OT last season. A one-goal setback in the opener, and a 4-2 loss with an empty-net goals Sunday at Los Angeles - essentially another one-goal defeat. The Wings lost an NHL-high 27 one-goal decisions last season. Two goals scored in each loss, for a team that failed to get to three goals in 42 of 82 games last season.
