Wings Are Due For A Win In Montreal

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Bell Centre in Montreal is one the best rinks in the NHL, filled with nostalgia and tradition.

But for the Red Wings, it’s become a place they simply can’t win in anymore.

The Wings haven’t won a game there in regulation time since Dec. 4, 2007. They have won by overtime or shootout three times over the last 14 games.

In the last two years, the Wings have lost games 10-1 and 7-3 at the Bell Centre. And in both cases, even the lopsided scores didn’t indicate how one-sided the games were.

“We’ve had some terrible nights in there,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “That’s the reality of it. They’ve been painful to endure.”

I would like to see the wings win. Montreal’s problem was only one 30+  goal scorer and their PP is as bad as ours. Their strength was a decent style of hockey that netted them 96 pts last session. The second, third and fourth lines will need to build chemistry early this season. Last game even the first line was shut down.

Speaking about Detroit’s lines, hope inconsistency doesn’t show up again.

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.
