In my opinion the Red Wings have lacked focus lately, and especially in the back-to-back losses to San Jose and Phoenix
It's been apparent throughout the season, but it really showed through tonight. When your all-star defensemen and headline-grabbing, offseason signing are making mistakes that I notice then something is definitely wrong.
Nicklas Lidstrom's attempt to clear the puck through the slot on the penalty kill led to one goal for the Coyotes.
Marian Hossa extra stick handling led to a three on one break and a goal for another.
Those are downright horrible mistakes a team with focus shouldn't make.
On the bright side it was the Wings first back-to-back, regulation losses of the season. That's pretty amazing. The All-Star break seems to be coming at the right time for the Wings.
Also did anybody see Dany Heatley's first goal for Ottawa in the Senators - Capitals game last night? I can't believe that goal was allowed as another Sen was in the crease and caused goalie interference. If that would've been Tomas Holmstrom, the goal would've been disallowed.
