Same old result as Edmonton Oilers fall to Detroit Red Wings
By DEREK VAN DIEST, QMI Agency
DETROIT - The Edmonton Oilers were hoping this time around things would be different.
But the only positive that came out of Thursday was news they may not have to travel to Detroit to face the Red Wings as often anymore.
For the Oilers, realignment can’t come soon enough as the same story played out once again, falling 3-0 to the Red Wings at the Joe Louis Arena.
Jakub Kindl, Corey Emmerton and Justin Abdelkader scored for the Red Wings, while Jimmy Howard pitched the shutout in goal.
