They’re not going in this season. Maybe some grit and grime will help, Detroit Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said.

“Him and I talked about when they’re not going in, you got to make sure you do everything else right,” Blashill said. “You got to make sure that your game is really sound structurally, and then find your way to the net and score some dirty goals.

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.
