The Red Wings came up short last night, losing to the Montreal Canadiens 5-4 at Joe Louis Arena. Tomas Tatar scored twice, while Riley Sheahan and Johan Franzen each lit the lamp for Detroit. Jimmy Howard stopped 24 shots in the loss. Tomas Jurco had an assist in his return to the lineup after missing seven games with a broken rib. Despite the loss to the Habs, the Wings are holding on to a wild card playoff spot with nine games remaining. Detroit travels to Toronto Saturday to skate against the Maple Leafs.
