Another Loss By The Detroit Red Wings

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Somebody shake the Red Wings and tell them the holiday break is over.

The days go by, and the losses are mounting for this rapidly falling team.

The Dallas Stars pretty much had their way Saturday — a day after the front office bluntly called out high-scoring forwards Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn — defeating the Wings 5-1.

The Stars scored three goals in the second period, then added two early in the third to deflate a Wings team that largely didn’t show up.

“We deserved to lose 100 percent,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “They outplayed us, without question. They were faster than us all over the ice. I don’t think they are faster than us, so that’s the way we played. We have to be better than that.”

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.
