* Preview:

The Wings blew a 3-1 second-period lead to the host Tampa Bay Lightning and lost their season opener 6-4 on Thursday night. It wasn't just the loss that was troubling -- it was the fact that the Wings gave up three power-play goals.

Tampa Bay's go-ahead goal came on a power play that took just five seconds to result in a score -- downright embarrassing for a proud Wings franchise.

"We had lots of self-inflicted wounds," Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "When you score three goals, you should at least go into overtime. But we gave up too many easy chances." (More)
