Watch Red Wings’ Riley Sheahan end 79-game drought with first goal
Watch Red Wings’ Riley Sheahan end 79-game drought with first goal.
After failing to score in his first 79 games this season, Sheahan finally connected in the Red Wings’ season finale – and the last game at Joe Louis Arena – to open the scoring Sunday against the New Jersey Devils.
Sheahan, who hadn’t scored since the final game of last season, beat Cory Schneider with a wrist shot from the slot at 7:09 of the first period.
Frans Nielsen and Justin Abdelkader drew the assists.
Sheahan had set a team record for the most games to start the season without a goal and he also set an NHL record as the only forward with at least 100 shots to start the season without a goal.
He scored on his 107th shot of the season.
