The locker room was quiet Friday after the game, which is to be expected from a team that’s 2-10-3 in the last 15 games.
Players, and coach Jeff Blashill, though, were steadfast in their belief the standings don’t tell the entirely correct story.
“We’ve talked about it before as a group,” Blashill said. “When we weren’t doing it right early (in the season), we were cheating (defensively) and then we were a bad hockey team. We are not a bad hockey team right now even though our record says we are. We are a good hockey team that is in every game and has chances to win.”
So, how have the Wings gotten to this particular point? And, most fans would like to know, how do they reverse it and get out of this muck?
“You make plays at critical moments,” Blashill said. “We have to make sure to keep doings right.”
