A Good Win

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The Detroit Red Wings put on a performance that resonated.

Feeding off the festive, fun atmosphere at T-Mobile Arena Saturday, the Wings looked like they belonged, even as their patchy lineup took on the Golden Knights, one of the best teams in the NHL and last season’s Stanley Cup finalist. It was a testament to the Wings character that they played as well as they did even as two weeks stand between them and another long offseason. This game was what the Wings mean when they talk about their culture.

“You get the leadership that we have with our veteran guys,” Dylan Larkin said after setting up the overtime goal in the 3-2 victory. “It could have went the other way where we didn’t show up but that wasn’t the case at all. We were fired up to play. We did some serious preparation for this game and it feels good to get two points.”

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.
