A Tough Loss For The Wings

02/12/2021 at 8:44am EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

"It was a tough one there, simple hockey," forward Dylan Larkin said. "We didn't get the puck out and it came back, we played a tough game, (but) we have to manage the puck and can't give up a last-minute goal. It was a tough pill to swallow."

The Wings (3-10-2) appeared to be headed for at least one point in the standings thanks to another fine defensive outing. But instead, it was a ghastly punch to the gut.

"Frustrating for sure," coach Jeff Blashill said. "We put ourselves in position to win another hockey game and we didn't finish it. That's the step we need to take.

"We have to react to it. That's what life is about. We'll have to wake up in the morning and pick ourselves up, look in the mirror, and keep trying to get better. A gut punch is a gut punch and you don't get the choice if you get it or don't get it. We got it and we have to pick ourselves up and get better."

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.
