The last time the Red Wings scored 5 goals in the 1st period? It was Feb. 7, 2009, when the Wings scored that many against Edmonton. The Wings went on to win the game 8-3. The Phoenix Coyotes certainly didn’t look very motivated to play sound defense, did they? The Wings could reach double figures the way it’s going right now.
