This is embarrassing. Per TSN’s BarDown blog, Jonathan Ericsson gave Red Wings assistant coach Doug Houda the wrong kind of headache on Tuesday night:
There’s a chance the Detroit Red Wings miss out on the playoffs once again this season, which would mark the first time since 1981-1983 that the team failed to make the postseason back-to-back years.
It’s certainly been a season to forget for the Red Wings as they lost for the third time in their last four games on Tuesday night, and it’s been showing in more ways than just on the standings.
During Tuesday’s tilt with the Nashville Predators, defenceman Jonathan Ericsson tried to do something nice for a Red Wings fan sitting behind the team’s bench, only it ended up backfiring on him and assistant coach Doug Houda got the worst of it all.
