as mentioned in While Mrazek and the Red Wings were shutting down the Penguins’ high powered offensive attack, the Red Wings feasted on some brutal turnovers by the Penguins and an off day from Matt Murray in net to put five goals on the board.
With the Red Wings holding a 2-1 lead entering the third period, a Jake Guentzel turnover resulted in Tomas Tatar‘s 14th goal of the season for the Red Wings to give them a two-goal lead.
This win came just one day after the Red Wings beat the Washington Capitals in a shootout.
They completed the weekend on Sunday with a rather convincing 5-2 win in Pittsburgh, taking advantage of a sloppy Penguins team that struggled in all phases of the game.
Sunday’s win is still just Detroit’s fourth in its past 14 games, while the Red Wings remain six points back of a playoff spot in 15th place in the Eastern Conference.

The odds of making the playoffs for what would be a 26th straight season remain faint, but the Wings at least have lit a little fire.
The Wings continued their good play in the second period, with all four lines getting the puck into Pittsburgh’s zone and Mrazek standing big when needed.
“When we are playing good, we’re playing good,” Henrik Zetterberg said.
