Nope, but it's going to be a reason, especially after a special game like Friday night. You can take a team seriously, but if you don't have the legs to skate it won't matter. On the other hand, Wings played Blues on their back half of a back to back and no one here is going to feel sorry for the Blues. It's not an excuse but it's the reality for all teams. What it comes down to in games like that is to simplify and and not make too many mistakes, and the Wings did a really poor job with that.

Here's some telling stats:
Blocked shots: CBJ 16, DET 5.
Hits: CJB 29, DET 11.
Takeaways: CBJ 10, DET 4.
