Red Wings drop first game of the prospect tournament ’19 to Chicago, 5-4 in OT: here’s audio of Joe Veleno, Moritz Seider and coach Ben Simon post-game

The Red Wings’ prospects rallied from a 4-1 deficit to tie the Chicago Blackhawks 4-4 during Friday’s prospect tournament game, forcing overtime, where they ultimately lost via a 5-4 decision.

The Wings’ comeback was stirring, with Joe Veleno scoring two gorgeous goals, and Moritz Seider played as advertised (damn well).

After the game, the media spoke with Joe Veleno, who discussed a host of topics regarding his performance, his linemates, Dylan Larkin’s status as a mentor and perhaps a future in politics…

Moritz Seider gave an animated post-game interview, assessing his performance, that of his team, his take on skating among his peers after playing last season in the DEL, and even his dislike for Kirby Dach (kudos to Art Regner for bringing that up)…

And coach Ben Simon assessed the team’s highs and lows, looked toward a quick turnaround as the Wings practice at 9:30 and play St. Louis at 3:30 PM, and the coach pointed out that there may be lineup changes as well:
