Detroit's Power Play Not What It Was

11/25/2018 at 8:02pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Red Wings’ power play hasn’t been as dangerous as it was earlier this month.

And that’s leading to a lot less team success.

In recent games, a key power-play goal could have turned the complexion of the game in the Red Wings’ favor.

But power-play goals have been few and far between.

The Red Wings haven’t generated nearly enough pressure, and what could be a game-changer has turned into two minutes of frustration.

“We’ve had different issues on different nights,” said coach Jeff Blashill after Saturday’s 3-2 shootout loss against Buffalo, in which the Wings were 0-for-4 on the power play. “(Friday in Washington) we couldn’t win any faceoffs. (Saturday) our entires were pretty good, but then we’d shoot it and not get it back.”

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.
