Filip Zadina Remains Confident

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Filip Zadina is mature enough to understand the need for patience, but that doesn’t mean he likes it.

He’s one of the primary players the Detroit Red Wings count on for production, but 11 games in, he only has one goal and three assists. When the Wings host the Florida Panthers on Friday, Zadina is likely to be on a line with Dylan Larkin — and depending on how things go, Anthony Mantha could join them. That’s not the most equitable distribution of skilled forwards, but the Wings are desperate after scoring just two goals combined in their past two games.

“We would love to score as a unit,” Zadina said Thursday. “It’s not coming our way so far but we had good looks last game. It’s coming. We just have to keep going, keep competing every shift. We have good chances on net. We just have to be patient and work hard and get to the net more.”

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.
