Confident Wings

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Since Oct. 26, the end point on a brutal month of hockey for the Wings, they have a 12-5-2 record and look nothing like the mess of the opening weeks.

Heading into Friday’s games the Wings had 30 points were only two points from an Eastern Conference wild-card spot.

“We collectively figured out what our game is and how we are going to give ourselves a chance to win every night,” defenseman Mike Green said.

What the Wings have accomplished in this particular week has begun to raise eyebrows.

Facing Boston, Colorado, Tampa and Toronto – four of the better teams in the NHL, and four teams that have defeated the Wings often in recent seasons – the Wings went 2-1-1, earning five of a possible eight points.

For large parts of each game, the Wings were the better team.

Instead of losing these games, and falling back in the standings, the Wings are winning and moving upward.

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.
