The Red Wings didn’t like the ‘new pucks,’ either

This note comes from the Associated Press’s Larry Lage’s recap from last night’s Red Wings win:

The NHL announced games on Tuesday night would use pucks made for last season, temporarily ditching microchipped pucks after concerns were raised about their performance.

“There was no doubt the pucks were not performing up to NHL standards,” Blashill said. “We never used it as an excuse, but there was definitely frustration from everyone I spoke with.”
