Wings Need Wins

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

“We’re doing a lot of things to be successful,” said coach Jeff Blashill, who added he hears positive reinforcement from coaches and players around the NHL. “We have to stay on it and understand we’ll be in lots of (close) games and we have to find a way to win them.

“We have to keep doing it right. We need points, we need wins, but we need to keep doing it right. Just play as complete as we can and find a way to win.”

The Red Wings entered play Friday seven points behind Carolina for the second and final wild-card spot — and having played two less games than the Hurricanes.

Four teams separate the Red Wings and the Hurricanes, which adds another substantial hurdle.

But the Red Wings feel the obstacles are manageable — they also play 23 of the 41 remaining games on the road — as long as they continue the positive momentum from the home stand.


Below, and also at the Detroit News, watch Bob Wojnowski, Ted Kulfan and Gregg Krupa talk Wings (not sure if this video has been posted by George earlier).

Wings need a top 4 draft pick more.

If the team has any hopes of making the playoffs, they need wins. But if they still have those playoffs ambitions, then they need to get out there and play like they want it.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
