But the Red Wings challenged for goaltender interference because Mikael Granlund’s skate had hit Bernier’s left pad, and the goal was nullified. AdThe Red Wings came up empty on their only power play in the second. “I thought our battle level was about 80%,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. The Red Wings recalled forward Mathias Bromé and defenseman Danny DeKeyser from the taxi squad and reassigned goaltender Kaden Fulcher to the taxi squad.
