Wings 2, Blues 1

Boyd Devereaux scores a rare goal late in the 3rd period, which turned out to be the game winner for the Wings last night in St. Louis The Wings earned an important victory last night, beating the St. Louis Blues 2-1 off a goal from Boyd Devereaux with 2:23 left in the game. The win put the Wings in the top spot of the Central Division where the Wings can now work to keep rather than work to get there. The Wings stuck with what was working and played Manny Legace, who had 21 saves in his third consecutive start. Brett Hull scored the other Wings goal and tied the game at 1 late in the second period. It was nice to see Boyd Devereaux actually do something to justify his being on the ice for once. He finally scored a goal after blowing it on so many slam dunk chances that just about anyone else would convert into goals. He might have been the luckiest player on the team for how many times he had a real chance to score but that's where the luck stopped. I had really started considering him to be the most worthless player on the team because it had become a given that he wouldn't score if given the chance. It's not that he doesn't work hard, it's just that he's been in a terrible rut. It was good to see him score finally, especially such an important goal. Thanks, Boyd! I unable to watch much of the game and so I was a little shocked when I turned it on and saw that it was in St. Louis. I had a friend who was supposed to go to "the game this weekend" and for some reason I assumed it was last night's game though now I realize it was Friday's game. One of those embarrassing brain farts, I guess. I feel like an idiot........ The Wings are now 14-9-2-0, have won 8 of their last 11 and are on a 3-game winning streak.
