Are The Wings Better Than Their Record?

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The locker room was quiet Friday after the game, which is to be expected from a team that’s 2-10-3 in the last 15 games.

Players, and coach Jeff Blashill, though, were steadfast in their belief the standings don’t tell the entirely correct story.

“We’ve talked about it before as a group,” Blashill said. “When we weren’t doing it right early (in the season), we were cheating (defensively) and then we were a bad hockey team. We are not a bad hockey team right now even though our record says we are. We are a good hockey team that is in every game and has chances to win.”

So, how have the Wings gotten to this particular point? And, most fans would like to know, how do they reverse it and get out of this muck?

“You make plays at critical moments,” Blashill said. “We have to make sure to keep doings right.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
