    Tampa Bay 5, Detroit 1: Why the Red Wings lost

    By Helene St. James,

    From Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida

    Game action: Cedric Paquette scored at 2:03 when he was left uncovered down low long enough to see one shot stopped but still had time to backhand his rebound for a 1- 0 lead.

    Kyle Quincey leveled J.T. Brown into the boards only to be challenged by Brett Connolly, landing each in the box, but Connolly for two extra minutes, giving Detroit a power play at 5:43.

    Darren Helm carried the puck from behind the net out and out front and scored through traffic at 11:59, with assists to Jonathan Ericsson and Pavel Datsyuk.

    Ben Bishop successfully challenged Riley Sheahan on a breakaway, catching Sheahan's shot. Paquette scored again with 37 seconds left, striding in from the boards and using a screen to beat Petr Mrazek.

    In the second period, Joakim Andersson went for holding at 3:30, giving Tampa Bay its first power play. Steven Stamkos converted at 4:18 with a slap shot from the left circle.

    Justin Abdelkader went for goaltender interference at 8:31 after crashing into Bishop, but with 27 seconds to go in that penalty, Ryan Callahan went for boarding Quincey, eventually sending the Wings on a 1:33 power play. Abdelkader came out of the box and got a good shot on Bishop from the right wing. It was the Lightning that did score, however, with Paquette breaking into Detroit's zone and gliding up the wing for a short- handed goal to complete his hat trick.

    Mark Barberio scored off a faceoff at 17:39 to make it 5-1 to Tampa.

    In the third period, Tom McCollum took over for Mrazek, who departed with a .667 save percentage. The Lightning didn't let up, with McCollum making back-to-back saves on Connolly near the midpoint.

    The Bolts had a 10-3 edge in shots the first 10 minutes of the third period.

    McCollum made another great save on Tyler Johnson, dropping forwards to deny Johnson a good rebound attempt.

    Game reaction: Henrik Zetterberg said, "even coming in after the first, we felt good about ourselves, we just needed a goal and to play good. We didn't do that. They're good. Obviously we gave them a lot of free chances. It was a big game, division game, they won this one. We'll see them again." ... Tomas Tatar, "whatever they shot, it went in. It's tough to respond. They have a good team, and it's tough to play against them."

    McCollum stands tall: Tom McCollum was Detroit's lone bright spot, making 17 saves in relief in the third period. "I was pretty busy," he said. "I could see a lot of the shots, so

    that makes it easier for me. I felt great out there." It has been an emotional few days for McCollum, who lost his grandfather Tuesday morning.

    Special teams report: The Wings went 0-for-2 on power plays, allowed one short- handed goal, and went 1-for-2 on penalty kills.

    Shot report: The Wings had 28 shots (8-7-13) and the Lightning had 32 (8-7-17).

    Next game: Saturday hosting the New York Islanders.

    Red Wings fall from first in 5-1 loss to Lightning

    By Helene St. James,

    11:41 p.m. EST January 29, 2015

    TAMPA, Fla. -- The Detroit Red Wings capsized like a rowboat in a storm.

    Their bird's-eye view of the Atlantic Division looked like a mirage after tonight's schooling by the Tampa Bay Lightning, which used a rookie to strike three times en route to a decisive 5-1 victory at Amalie Arena. The Bolts leapfrogged Detroit to retake first place in the division just two nights after the Wings had snuck up there.

    "First period, actually, not bad," captain Henrik Zetterberg said. "We come out and play good, and then second and third, we can just scratch from our memory. Didn't go our way. They come in and score three goals, one short-handed and then in the third, it's game over."

    Box score: Lightning 5, Red Wings 1

    Zetterberg said the game should serve as a reminder that "when you're winning a lot of games, sometimes you start to cheat a little bit. That's when you go away from your structure, and teams will score. We've got to learn from this and get to playing the way we should."

    Coach Mike Babcock painted a different picture, delivering a short post-game analysis in which he said he didn't think the game reflected the lack of attention to details he'd talked about for two days. "I thought we had good attention to detail," he said. "I thought we played good. I thought that might have been our best first period in a while. The puck just went in the net, let's be honest. It was in the net every time they shot it. So you're down by, not quite a touchdown, but a chunk right off the get go.

    "We just had a good run here, won six in a row, we got spanked here tonight, let's get regrouped."

    No Detroit player other than backup Tom McCollum had a good night as the Wings' six- game winning streak was effectively doused - not Petr Mrazek, who left after five goals on 15 shots, not the defense, which allowed a goal within the last half-minute of a period, not special teams, which allowed both a power play goal and a shorthanded one. Darren Helm scored a goal, but it's not one Ben Bishop is going to rue.

    The damage began early, as Cedric Paquette started work on his hat trick just two minutes after the puck first dropped. Paquette had enough time to roam just outside the crease to try once and succeed on his second attempt, sending the puck behind Mrazek with a backhand. Helm balanced that with a nice move out from behind the net, firing a shot high behind Bishop 10 minutes later, but then Paquette scored a goal he should

    long remember, getting the puck off Pavel Datsyuk to burn the Wings with 37 seconds left before intermission.

    Over the past four games, the Wings have allowed a combined 17 goals.

    "We can only cheat ourselves for so long," Niklas Kronwall said. "There's a lot of things that need to be better and needs to be improved."

    They fell behind by two goals when their penalty kill came up short for a sixth straight game, though in fairness Steven Stamkos has scored on many an opponent. He did so in the second period not even a minute into a power play, winding up his cannonball shot from the left circle to score for the 27th time this season.

    Paquette, a fourth-round pick from 2012, soon put a lid on what hopes the Wings might have had of salvaging the situation. During a Detroit power play, no less, he took advantage of a Henrik Zetterberg turnover to score shorthanded. Jason Garrison next won a short fight against Justin Abdelkader - who'd earlier run Bishop - to further hammer home the Lightning's dominance. Just in there was any doubt, Mark Barberio - who had no goals coming in - scored off a faceoff with minutes to go in what was as bad a second period as the Wings have had this season.

    "It was bad, no doubt about that," Kronwall said.

    McCollum came in for what can only be described as mop-up duty in the third period. He, actually, was the one Wing who did do well - but it was much too late to matter.

    Hopes high for Jurco as he returns to Wings' lineup

    By Helene St. James,

    10:46 p.m. EST January 29, 2015

    TAMPA -- Tomas Jurco has impressed the Detroit Red Wings with his size -- and his singing.

    The young Slovak winger returned to the lineup for the first time in three weeks Thursday, playing 11 minutes in the 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay at Amalie Arena. Jurco had been out since back pain flared Jan. 6.
