Wrapping Up The Wings’ Win Over The New York Rangers

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Andreas Athanasiou scored the game-tying goal on an electrifying play with two minutes remaining in regulation. Then he made a slick pass to Dylan Larkin for the winning goal with 5.1 seconds to play in overtime.

Those are the plays difference-makers make. Athanasiou has what it takes to be a difference-maker - elite speed and finishing ability.

So far this season, he's also shown something that has been lacking during his career - consistent competitiveness. That's good for the Red Wings moving forward.

"From the first day of camp I think he's been engaged and done the things that it takes to be a real good hockey player," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said following Friday's 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers at Little Caesars Arena. "His habits have been real good in practice and he's done a real good job for us."


from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,

For long stretches against the Rangers Friday, the Red Wings faced their continuing challenge of difficulty just getting the puck out of their own end.

Eventually, though, with Jimmy Howard staving off defeat yet again, the Wings managed.

Then, their young guns startedfiring. And now, the Wings have won five of their last six.

The high-flying Andreas Athanasiou, returning from four games lost to injury, tied the game with 2:02 left in regulation.

And then, in overtime, Athanasiou deftly fed Dylan Larkin who sped into the Rangers’ zone to beat Henrik Lundqvist for his seventh goal of the season.

Quick Recap- DRW/NYR

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

First period, the good- Wings killed off 4 minutes in penalties

The bad- too many turnovers and too much time in their own zone.  Both go hand in hand.

0-0 at the end of the 1st.

The Wings started applying pressure midway through the 2nd but a double minor to de la Rose changed the momentum.

The Rangers scored twice on the power play to take a 2-0 lead going into the 3rd period.

Early in the 3rd period, Nyquist steals the puck from Brendan Smith, feeds it to Abdelkder and the Wings are within a goal.

With 2:02 left in 3rd, Athanasiou tied it up.

In OT Larkin scores with 5 seconds left, Wings win 3-2.

Goals and Detroit stats are below.

We Have No Appetite For Tweeners, Kenny

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

There was an optional skate in Detroit this morning.

Captains participate, which is why Dylan Larkin was there; because he's the captain of the Detroit Red Wings.  You don't have to declare that, Jeff, it's ok. 

Save that for whichever coach Steve Yzerman has already hired to lead this team next season.

American Thanksgiving Is Quickly Approaching

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

No, I am not going to predict which teams will make the playoffs as we approach Thanksgiving (since I am an American, I do not have to refer to it as 'American Thanksgiving').

Instead, I would rather just write about what we have seen this season at this point in the NHL.

Consider Me Your Review Source

Just like this ruby slots casino review is a good place to start for casino reviews, I will take you on a review of all things NHL for the first six weeks of the regular season.

Get Off My Plane

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP at the National Post,

The Ottawa Senators appeared to fire another salvo in their ongoing battle with the Ottawa Citizen on Friday, with the newspaper saying one of its sports reporters was denied access to the team’s charter.

The development came two days after the newspaper said it would not take down a secretly recorded video of several Senators players from an Uber vehicle in Arizona despite a legal notice insisting that leaving it online violates provincial privacy laws.

Hockey writer Ken Warren was expecting to take the team charter to cover the Senators’ game at Tampa Bay on Saturday but was denied access to the flight, Ottawa Citizen editor-in-chief Michelle Richardson said.

“I can confirm it happened this morning,” Richardson said. “For us, it doesn’t really change our fundamentals. We’re still committed to covering the Senators, both the good and the bad. Our coverage is important to our readers and to their fans and that’s not going to change.”
