A2Y- Wrapping Up A Win In Calgary

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

Confidence. Resiliency. Swagger. Belief in themselves. NHL players refer to the feeling in many different ways. But when a team finds feels like the Red Wings do today success always follows.

A couple of weeks ago, the Red Wings were sinking deeper into the Connor Bedard Derby and now they are suddenly legitimately in the playoff race.

“It’s amazing, it’s obviously a much better feeling than we had five games ago,” Detroit forward David Perron told Bally Sports

The Red Wings will go into Saturday’s game in Seattle with a five-game winning streak after downing the Calgary Flames 5-2 Thursday in Calgary. They are only two points back of the playoff line in the Eastern Conference.

The team’s resiliency has taken many forms during the winning streak. Against Calgary, goalie Magnus Hellberg gave up a bad shorthanded goal early in the game. Earlier in the season, the Red Wings might have struggled to recover from the deflating event.

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.
