Red Wing won the power play battle Thursday night against Hudson, but fell 5-3 in Hudson, Wis.
The Wingers (0-2) went 2-for-7 on the power play and held the Raiders scoreless three times on the penalty kill, but Hudson broke a 3-3 tie in the third period to get the win.
“We’re still going through a little bit of a growing spurt,” Red Wing head coach Mike Belisle said. “We’ve got eight or nine brand new varsity high school players. … Hudson was buzzing around pretty good. We held in there and obviously the last couple (goals) take the wind out of you.”
The Raiders went up 2-0 in the first period on goals from Adam Lipps and Jack Cernohous, with both assists to Parker Shefveland.
Dylan Goggin cut the deficit to 2-1 for the Wingers at 1 minute, 34 seconds of the second period on a goal, with assists from Anthony Kimmes and Tyler Rea. Hudson went back up by two goals at 8:46 on an unassisted goal by Michael Hommes. But Kyle LaPorte responded with an unassisted goal of his own a few minutes later to pull Red Wing back within 3-2.
The third period started well for the Wingers as Alex Rezansoff tallied a power-play goal to tie the game at 3-3, 5:04 into the period. The assist went to Michael Bigelbach.
But Hudson took over from there, getting goals from Carter Shuett and Wyatt Dove after the 13-minute mark of the third period.
Red Wing outshot the Raiders 28-23 in the loss.
The Wingers are on the road again Saturday against South St. Paul.
