A Hockey Team Is Forming In Detroit

from Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit Free Press,

If you didn’t see Tuesday’s game, you missed out because it’s starting to feel like something special is brewing like progress is being made.

If you haven’t been watching, I can’t blame you. I spoke with a diehard Wings fan recently who admitted it’s been tough to watch the team as it continues a long rebuild. In February, the Wings were shut out twice in seven days and scored four goals over four games. The Production Line, they ain’t.

But the Wings’ latest four-game stretch against two of the NHL’s best teams was not only watchable, but enjoyable. They played a great second period in the OT loss to Tampa Bay. And then came Tuesday, which was arguably their best game of the season from start to finish.

“We played the way real hockey teams have to play,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “It was a good step. … Now we’re in a spot where we’ve played pretty good hockey and we’re starting to see some results. It’s important reinforcement for guys to keep their belief up.”

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.
