Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Needed in relief Wednesday
Pickard allowed three goals on 21 shots in Wednesday's 8-5 loss to the Blackhawks.
Alex Nedeljkovic was ineffective in the first period, and Pickard played the final two frames. The Red Wings' offense did enough to get their starter off the hook for the loss, leaving Pickard with the result in his 2021-22 debut.
