Osgood denied 400th career win

Veteran Detroit Red Wings goaltender Chris Osgood will have to wait a little longer before getting that elusive 400th career victory. The 38 year-old came up short for a second time on Thursday night when the St. Louis Blues scored three goals in the first period and held on for a 4-3 win. “I actually thought we started all right, the first 10 minutes of the game was good,” Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “They scored a power-play goal and kind of took over. We tilted the rink pretty good. I thought we deserved a couple power plays down the stretch, especially after that call on (Niklas) Kronwall for cross-checking (in the third period) when he just pushed the guy. That’s the way life is, you got to start on time. You got to get the lead in this League or else it makes it hard for you.” Osgood, who was also denied by the Dallas Stars in his first shot at 400 wins was beaten twice by Blues forward Patrik Berglund on Thursday night along with Erik Johnson and Matt D’Agostini. Meanwhile scoring for Detroit were Patrik Eaves, Nicklas Lindstrom and Johan Franzen. “It’s unfortunate for him we haven’t been able to get him the win,” Babcock said about Osgood. “But he’s in the battle, too. We’re all in it together.”
