The Detroit News

Gregg Krupa

After bit of a slow start, shots come in fusillade for Red Wings in win. Stephen Weiss scores two goals after two enormously difficult years, with injuries. Lethargic third period almost costly!

Ted Kulfan

Good for Stephen Weiss.

This is a guy who has had miserable luck with injuries since signing with the Red Wings on July 1, 2013.

He scored two goals in 26 games last season before going down for the season with a sports hernia.

Struggled to get back on the ice this season.

To see him get two goals in only his second game this season, after all the frustration he's encountered, good for Stephen Weiss.

Finally, a bit of positive news.
