The other side.

Michael Smith of the Canes website,

The Carolina Hurricanes had a competitive third period, but by that point, they were working from behind.

The Canes scored two game-tying goals in the third period, but it was Robby Fabbri who found the difference-maker for the Detroit Red Wings with 2:42 left in regulation in a 4-2 final.

The Difference
Give the Red Wings credit: They put forth a consistent compete level for 60 minutes. The Canes, on the other hand, were slow to get going, especially in the first two periods, and that was their downfall, despite the fact that they mounted a pair of comebacks in the final 20 minutes.

“It wasn’t that we didn’t work hard. We didn’t play our game,” head coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “I didn’t know what I was watching for two periods. That’s what really frustrated me.”

What was the reason for the slow start? It begins with preparation, and the Canes, for whatever reason, weren’t ready to meet the challenge from the drop of the puck.

“Preparation is all mental. It’s on each and every one of us individually to prepare for each game. It’s the NHL. It’s pro hockey. You’ve got to be ready to come every night. We weren’t tonight,” Vincent Trocheck said. “We just didn’t bring it.”

Bobby Ryan’s brain moves fast and his mouth can actually
keep up!

He’s a smart guy and I can kind of imagine him perhaps overthinking things
and being too hard on himself in the past. That can get a smart and good person in trouble sometimes just trying to slow down the whir. Don’t mean to speculate out of turn. Just something that seems possible.

This was a really smart signing. If it’s very successful, of course that might mean
he only spends one season in Detroit. But hopefully, he’ll both play great and be a Red Wing for a while. It can help for sure to have a mix of positive personalities and a deadly right shot with some size doesn’t hurt.

Welcome to Detroit, Bobby. We never lumped you in with Perry and Getzlaf anyway.

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.
