An Upset Future Captain

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The frustration was there in Dylan Larkin’s voice, there in his face.

His Detroit Red Wings — and they are his, because at 22 years old, he has established himself as the driving force of the rebuilding process — had just lost their 23rd game of the season, had just lost another game even though they played well, and did more things right than wrong. They’ve done that every game since New Year’s Eve, but have one victory over their past 10 games, and three victories their past 15 games.

“It’s getting frustrating, it has been frustrating,” Larkin said after the Wings fell 4-2 Friday at MTS Place to the Winnipeg Jets. “I thought for parts we outplayed them, the majority of the game we outplayed them, but how can we keep coming in here and saying that?

“Something has to click here. Something has to change where we buy in. Something has to click where we buy into total team defense.”

Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News with this...

Only two teams — Philadelphia (38) and Los Angeles (37) — have fewer points than the Wings right now.

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.
