A Refreshed Detroit Team

A four-day break, the longest of this shortened, condensed season for the Detroit Red Wings, came at a good time, coach Jeff Blashill said.

It provided two days of much-needed rest and a couple of important practices.

“We had a couple days where we didn’t skate, one was completely off, except for (COVID) testing, and one just for a lift,” Blashill said. “I thought the energy coming back from those days was tremendous. Hopefully, it carries forward to tonight.

“Both practices allowed us to reset ourselves a little bit, systematically make sure our structure is real good. We’re a team that has to play with great structure. I think it came at a good time, close to the midway point of season. Gave us a chance to get refreshed and reset.”

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.
