Detroit's Defense On Display At The World Championship

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

At least one Detroit Red Wing will return from the World Championship with a medal.

Defensemen Troy Stecher and Moritz Seider helped their teams to quarterfinal victories Thursday in Latvia and a spot in Saturday’s semifinals.

Canada, with Stecher, defeated Russia 2-1 in overtime and will face the United States on Saturday (7:15 a.m. ET, NHL Network). Germany, with Seider, edged Switzerland 3-2 in a shootout to advance against Finland on Saturday (11:15 a.m. ET, NHL Network).

Andrew Mangiapane (Calgary) scored the winning goal for Canada. Stecher made it possible by taking a drop pass just inside the blue line, making two nifty moves to elude defenders and sending a backhand pass across the front of the net for a one-timer.

Stecher led his team in ice time (25:51).

Seider logged 23:07, second on his team, in ice time. Leon Gawanke scored the tying goal with 44 seconds remaining in the third period.

“I think we were the better team from the beginning,” Seider said in a story posted on iihf.com. “There was no doubt that we were going to win that game. We can be very proud of ourselves.

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.
