Bad 'D'

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Defense is the Detroit Red Wings’ weakest area, has been for some time. The issue has been compounded with injuries, but the unit held together well during a stretch where they gained eight of 10 points.

But poor defensive coverage was the main problem in a 4-3 loss to the Ottawa Senators Tuesday at Little Caesars Arena.

“I thought our back end had a tough night,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. “That said, you know what, those guys want to play, so if you want to play, here’s your opportunity. Play better than you did.”

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Anthony Mantha showed off his shot. Dennis Cholowski showed he needs to be more assertive.

As the Detroit Red Wings work their way through another rebuilding season, waiting for reinforcements from the next wave of prospects, one of the key areas of focus is the growth of the young players who are headlining the effort in Detroit. Mantha is one those, and it’s encouraging to see how he’s establishing himself as a scoring threat.

He netted his 12th goal of the season in Tuesday’s 4-3 loss to Ottawa at Little Caesars Arena, and registered seven shots on net. Mantha is on pace for 40 goals.

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.
