Abdelkader had the Wings' sole goal Saturday. "I think we try to continue to get better".
Turgeon is the son of former National Hockey League player and current Los Angeles Kings assistant coach Pierre Turgeon, who registered 1,327 points (515-812-1,327) in 1,294 career games with six different teams spanning 19 seasons (1987-2007). The Penguins had a similar break after a 6-5 overtime victory over Boston. Tomas Tatar sent the puck to the net, and Abdelkader battled to get to the rebound, then slipped a backhand behind Tristan Jarry at 13:36. "I dont think we rest on that".
"That was the difference in the game", he said. Second of all, you don't create any chaos. We have to be a shoot-first-mentality-type team.
The Wings converted on their third power play.
