It’s How The Wings Lost Last Night

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

It wasn’t a performance that would impress any boss, much less one as exacting as Steve Yzerman.

By their own admission the Detroit Red Wings quit playing Thursday at Prudential Center and got what they deserved, a 4-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

Yzerman, who recently was overseas scouting, watched from the press box as the Wings played subpar even for a group that sits 31st in the NHL at 14-41-4. Their 32 points are 13 worse than any other team.

There wasn’t much for those in the locker room to do but concede what a letdown it was.

This rebuild will make a win a surprise, at this time.  Most of the D and part of the Bottom 6 will make Wins tough to get, this year!

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.
