    Detroit Red Wings end exhibition season with 4-4 record after loss in Buffalo

    Detroit — The Red Wings didn’t end the exhibition season probably the way they wanted.

    The Wings ended the warm-up games Saturday with a 3-1 loss in Buffalo.

    Sam Gagner was the lone Wings’ goal scorer, as the Wings finished the exhibition season with a 4-4-0 record.

    Buffalo Sabres right wing Tage Thompson (72) scores a goal while defended by Detroit Red Wings center Joe Veleno (90) during the second period of Saturday's game in Buffalo, N.Y.

    Tage Thompson, Zemgus Girgensons (shorthanded) and Vinnie Hinostroza (empty net) countered for Buffalo.

    It was Girgensons’ goal that was the difference.

    Wings goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic attempted to handle the puck in front of him and batted the puck off defenseman Moritz Seider, directly to Girgensons.

    BOX SCORE: Sabres 3, Red Wings 1

    Nedeljkovic dove, but couldn’t stop Girgensons’ easy put back.

    The Wings open the regular season Thursday at home against two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay.
