"A Really Good Game" For The Wings

Again, a return to Little Caesars Arena proved to be the cure the Red Wings needed to right all their ills.

Returning home with a three-game losing streak — including two lackluster losses in St. Louis and Colorado — the Wings looked like a different team Tuesday while defeating the New York Islanders, 2-1.

The Wings played a much better defensive game than was evident on the road, and looked like a confident team while back on home ice.

"We played a real good game, a real good hockey game," coach Jeff Blashill said. "They played hard and we played hard and it was a good hockey game.

"We played much better defensively than we did on the road, kind of like we did before we left LCA, we were much better in the defensive zone and offensively we used our speed to get on their defense."

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.
