Another Loss By The Wings

03/03/2019 at 9:06am EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Maybe a year from now the Red Wings will be where the Arizona Coyotes are now.

And judging where the Coyotes are, the Wings would probably be happy with that. They’d take it.

The resurgent Coyotes, who’ve been rebuilding, seemingly, for years now, defeated the Wings 3-1 on Saturday.

After many stops and starts the Coyotes might finally have this rebuilding stuff down pat.

The win was Arizona’s sixth in a row. The Coyotes (32-28-5) have won nine of the past 11, and with Saturday’s victory moved into the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press was not in Arizona but did write about Jack Hughes.

Jack Hughes has been the favorite to go first overall in the 2019 NHL entry draft for more than a year, the 17-year-old middle child in a family of hockey phenoms. He’s a "generational-type" forward who draws comparisons to Patrick Kane and a self-assured teenager who's grounded by his family even though some project him to impact the league by 2020.

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.
