How To Score On The Power Play Per Jeff Blashill

03/27/2022 at 10:03am EDT

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

Meanwhile, the Red Wings are coming off a 2-1 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. They have lost nine of their last 11, although they did pick up a couple of extra points for pushing the Minnesota Wild and Lightning beyond regulation.

The Red Wings lost the matinee game against Tampa Bay on special teams. The Lightning scored two power-play goals, including the winner in overtime. Detroit went 0-for-5 on the power play. Detroit is 1-for-10 on the power play in the past five games.

“I don’t want to take away from their kill but I would say we had opportunities to attack better off the flank,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “And if you attack off the flank, you’re drawing their D up.The way they kill, they kind of stand with two guys in the middle and they sweep down and then their D come up. When you attack that D, now you make them nervous. He’s got to get into a shot block position. Then you get opportunities to drop it low or to shot tip and get pucks around the cage. I didn’t think we attacked well enough there.”

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.
