Penguins fall to Red Wings in exhibition game

Michael Rasmussen, Andreas Athanasiou and Trevor Daley scored in a six-minute span of the second period to lead the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 exhibition victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday afternoon at PPG Paints Arena.

The Penguins are 1-2-1 in the preseason. They’ll host the Buffalo Sabres in another exhibition game Wednesday night.

Ryan Haggerty and Teddy Blueger scored for the Penguins.

Haggerty collected a loose puck at the left hash marks and fired a shot in under the crossbar in the first period. It was the second goal of the preseason for Haggery, a 25-year-old winger playing on an AHL contract.

Blueger scored on a breakaway in the second period. He skated into a long head-man pass Haggerty banked off the boards in the neutral zone and beat goalie Harri Sateri with a backhand move.

Casey DeSmith and Tristan Jarry, who are competing for the back-up job behind Matt Murray, each played half the game.

DeSmith allowed the three Detroit goals in the second period.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
