Reflections Of The Past

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Nothing like the playoffs to remind the Detroit Red Wings of what they used to have.

For example: a productive defense.

The last Game 7 of the first round, won 4-3 in double overtime by the Carolina Hurricanes to oust defending champion Washington, included a three-point performance by Canes defenseman Jaccob Slavin.

Slavin became just the eighth defenseman in NHL history to notch three points in a Game 7 — and the first since Nicklas Lidstrom and Brian Rafalski each delivered three points to help the Wings beat the Coyotes, 6-1, in Game 7 of their 2010 first-round series.


Below, the Wings posted the top 10 goals from the Wings this season.

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
