The Red Wings got a much needed win as they took care of the Canadiens 4-3 Thursday night.
Riley Sheahan scored two goals, and Luke Glendening and Anthony Mantha also found the back of the net. It was Mantha’s first goal of his NHL career.
The Win gives the Wings 85 points, which puts them back in the final playoff wildcard spot, two points ahead of the Flyers.
Detroit returns to the ice Saturday when they host the Penguins.
