Videos- Wings Get Their First Win In A Month

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Red Wings did something they hadn’t done since Nov. 12, exactly a month.

They won a game.

Seriously, they did. With Robby Fabbri (two goals, one assist), Filip Zadina (one goal, two assists) and Filip Hronek (goal, two assists) leading the way on Thursday, the Wings ended a 12-game winless streak with a  5-2 victory over Winnipeg.

“It’s huge,” said forward Dylan Larkin, who played over 20 minutes despite an illness. “The way we played tonight, I feel it’s repeatable. Our defense did a great job moving the pucks and our power play was on tonight, it made it hard on (Winnipeg goalie Connor) Hellebuyck.

“We played physical and together and there was more talk on the ice between the five guys and the goalies and it really helped our game moving up the ice. We had some real chances and it feels to play that way and get rewarded.”

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.
