Inconsistent Detroit Red Wings End up on Wrong End of Goaltending Duel

The Detroit Red Wings did everything they could to put the Anaheim Ducks to sleep on Sunday.

In doing so, they also went to sleep offensively.

Anaheim's Jonas Hiller stopped all 22 shots to earn his 14th straight victory, while Andrew Cogliano scored the lone goal of the game to give the Ducks a 1-0 victory.

Petr Mrazek was able to keep the Wings in the game, as he made 22 saves, but couldn't stop a tip-in from Cogliano at 12:42 of the second period.

"We played one of our best games tonight," Henrik Zetterberg said. "I think we fought hard. We played good enough to win, but couldn't find a way."

A big problem for the Red Wings has been their lack of scoring on the power play, as they have not scored with a man advantage in their last 21 chances.

"When we're limited like this our power play's got to be more dangerous," head coach Mike Babcock said. "We're too many one-offs. We don't it get back enough. We're not on the inside enough, so that's something that can improve but, all in all, a good effort for our team."

THREE STARS:

  1. ANA Jonas Hiller (W, 22 Saves, 1.000 Save Percentage)
  2. ANA Andrew Cogliano (Goal)
  3. ANA Kyle Palmieri (Assist)
