Red Wings beat Toronto 7-4, advance to championship game; post-game audio from Pearson, Hirose, Romeo and coach Simon

The Detroit Red Wings’ prospects defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs’ prospects 7-4, and the Wings will advance to the prospect tournament championship game tomorrow, playing the Dallas Stars at 5 PM EDT (on Fox Sports GO and the Red Wings’ YouTube channel).

The Red Wings lost Alec Regula to what appeared to be a concussive hit halfway through the 1st period, and managed to rally from a deficit while playing 5 defensemen. Moritz Seider and Gustav Lindstrom played the vast majority of the night, or so it seemed!

After the game, Chase Pearson spoke with the media regarding his hat trick performance and the importance of secondary scoring in the Wings’ win…

Taro Hirose spoke with the media regarding getting ready for the team’s 4th game in 5 nights and the loss of Alec Regula…

Sean Romeo discussed the Wings’ win and his no-frills goaltending with myself and’s Dana Wakiji…

And coach Ben Simon praised the team’s play and resolve while suggesting that there are improvements to be made. He would not confirm Regula’s injury as anything other than an injury:
