Detroit's Compete Level Is Up

11/01/2018 at 1:09pm EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said the biggest difference in his team the past two games from earlier in the season has been its compete level.

"We better come out today ready to compete and win puck battles and puck races," Blashill said. "I think we've been a good team the last couple of games, we've been in position to win games and we've won them. Prior to that we didn't win them. Confidence matters and the more you win the more confidence you have and the better you feel about yourself. But the only way you keep it is to make sure you're playing with the same kind of drive and competition level."

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.
