The Red Wings beat the Avalanche 4-2 last night in Colorado. Detroit has won four straight. Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall was taken off the ice on a stretcher after hitting his head into the boards on a check from behind by Cody McLeod, who received a game misconduct. Kronwall suffered a concussion and cuts to his right ear. He was alert and didn’t go to the hospital. Kronwall will be further evaluated today.
