Yesterday in Detroit, the Kings outshot the Red Wings 47-31. They outhit them 25-24. And they even controlled 58% of the faceoffs. Still, after battling back from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game in the final minute of regulation, they lost with just 4.5 seconds on the clock. It was one of the more frustrating defeats of the season for the players and coaching staff, who collectively felt they gave one of their best efforts this season.
