In what is more than likely a look into the future of a long time rivalry, the Blues took on the Red Wings Tuesday night at the Traverse City prospect tournament. The Blues lost 2-1 in a close game that saw a lot of penalty minutes from both teams. The Red Wings got on the board quickly with a goal by Brent Raedeke as he beat Blues goalie Jake Allen just 58 seconds into the game. Later in the first the Blues tied the game up on an Alex Pietrangelo power play goal. The first period ended with the score even at one and saw seven penalties. The Blues outshot the Red Wings 14-9 in the first. The second period was a defensive struggle that saw no goals and another seven penalties. The Red Wings won the game on a late third period goal by Tomas Tatar and earned the Red Wings a spot in the championship game on Wednesday. The third period saw four more penalties and gave the game a total of 18 penalties. The Red Wings outshot the Blues 30-29 and goalie Jake Allen stopped 28 of 30 shots but fell to 1-1 for the tournament. The Blues will play their final game against Columbus on Wednesday and then report to their respective teams.
