Videos- Recap Of Detroit’s 2-1 Shootout Loss To The Columbus Blue Jackets

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

"We wanted to make sure we didn't shoot ourselves in the foot," Blashill said. "We did with the first goal, so that's something we got to keep working on, but I thought overall we had some real good pushes. We were clearly the better team in the second period. I thought early in the third we were really good until we scored and then they pushed hard but they're a good team, they're going to push, too. It kind of went back and forth. I thought from a process standpoint it was a continued step in the right direction."

After Blashill said there were NO EXCUSES for losing this game, I wrote that what if we play well but get stymied by a hot goalie or get a couple of bad breaks. That’s not an excuse. But that’s merely an explanation for why teams sometimes lose hockey games. But I’m sure the players really enjoyed reading in the media about how their coach pinned 100% of this loss on them…

Blashill with a lot of “we” in the post game. Good. He takes some responsibility and ownership in the outcome of the games.

Of course, no one asked him why Frky didnt see that much ice. At which point he’d probably blame the lack of pp opportunities.

Then blash can go 1 of 2 ways (if our media really pushed him): explain why frk got so little time (tight game?) or put more onus on himself to get an offensive weapon on the ice when you need a goal.

Good point on Frk, not sure how many of his 6 goals have been on the PP.  Ice time will always be a point of contention.

What happened to the “shorten your benches ” ?  LGD, Wit, etc could of/should of been stapled to the the bench when you need a push back.
