News@noon: Finding Nessy, bad luck Drake, take the i-Road

The Detroit News

Today is Thursday, April 14, 2016 and the Red Wings are officially behind in the first round of the playoffs after falling to the Lightning, 3-2.

The Red Wings and the Lightning mix it up during a second period fight.

Game 1 was a bit of a mixed bag, with Detroit coming out with considerable determination in the first and second periods, but not following it up with their strongest performance. So the question is, can the Wings toughen up and steal a win in Tampa Bay before coming back home? Let us know what you think in the comments or tweet us @detroitnews.

At least we have the Tigers to make us feel better.
