Winless In Six

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

After Friday’s 3-2 loss in Columbus, there wasn’t the ugly feeling of the night before, losing soundly to expansion Vegas.

This time, the Red Wings felt they did enough to have deserved a better fate.

“There were a few chances here and there that we’d like to clean up,” said captain Henrik Zetterberg, who didn’t mince words about his team’s play after the Vegas loss. “We gave them (the Blue Jackets) three (goals), we should have scored more than two. We had a lot of chances.

“We worked harder, we did things right, and everyone showed up.”

But, still, the Red Wings are losing.

Friday’s loss extended their winless streak to six games (0-5-1). Victories have been rare for a while, actually, as the Red Wings (26-31-11, 63 points) have won only three times in the last 13 games (3-8-2).

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.
