Three goal leads

DETROIT — The Wings know all too well about blowing three-goal leads in this year’s playoffs.

Unlike their ability to regain composure and win in overtime, Toronto could not in Game 7 against Boston on Monday.

“It was unbelievable,” forward Damien Brunner said. “When (Boston) was 4-1 down I was still thinking that they were coming back. Then with the two-minute mark, down two goals, and I was like, ‘OK, maybe, no,’ but then they scored the third goal and I was pretty sure they were coming back.”

The Wings also led 4-1 in Game 2 with Anaheim.

“We broke down too, I don’t know why, sometimes it’s the momentum,” Brunner said. “They had the home crowd going and the other team gets nervous. Toronto was the underdog and from what I’ve heard, the fan pressure is pretty big there and they were all pretty excited to beat Boston. Then everything broke down in the last 10 minutes.”
