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.
