Detroit's Work Ethic

from Arthur J. Regner of DetroitRedWings.com,

After they dispatched the Canadiens 4-2 on Thursday night in Montreal, the Red Wings were pumped, but not overly euphoric about beating a team that has dominated them in recent years.

Most of the Wings attributed their victory to Detroit's attitude of playing a relentless style of hockey regardless of the situation....

"Our guys understand, for us to be a good hockey team, we have to be workers, we have to be committed to doing it right, we have to be really good defensively, have great attention to detail," said Wings coach Jeff Blashill after Friday's practice at BELFOR Training Center. "I think we've worked and competed and sacrificed. The sacrifice is showing in the blocked shots, the work and compete in the puck battles and the relentless pursuit of the puck.

"Tomorrow night against Toronto we better be a hard forechecking team that's making them defend, otherwise it's a hard night. I think our team understands what we need to be to be successful. I think we have a full grasp of that. That doesn't mean we're going to do it every night, but we got to do as close to every night as humanly possible."

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.
