The Red Wings last night lost their exhibition rematch against the New York Rangers, who beat Detroit 5-to-1 at Madison Square Garden. It was a struggle for Red Wing’s goalie Jimmy Howard, especially in the first period when he gave up 3 goals. Howard had 21 saves last night after making 18 saves during Sunday’s 5-to-3 Detroit victory over New York at Joe Louis Arena.
Defenseman Brian Rafalski scored the Red Wing’s goal last night. Detroit is now 2-and-3 in the pre-season. The Red Wings host Toronto tomorrow night.
