Jeff Blashill Pointing Fingers Without Naming Names

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

We have some guys in our room who’ve been real good players for us and they have to rise their game up to be way better,” Blashill said. “There are a number of guys, we got talent spread throughout the lineup that weren’t nearly good enough. Certainly the guys who get a lot of ice time can be way better.”

The Wings have been affected by a flu bug that’s gone around the locker room, and was a factor in a listless 4-2 loss Sunday to Los Angeles.

But Blashill wouldn’t use that as an excuse against Columbus.

“Guys felt better, that’s all bull---- on that,” Blashill said. “Sunday, honest to God, we had no energy. Tonight, that’s bull----. You have guys who are real good players, didn’t play real good. Your best players have to play way better than that.”

Forwards Andreas Athanasiou (12 minutes, 54 seconds, two shots), Bertuzzi (21:38, two shots, one goal), Dylan Larkin (23:59, minus-3, three giveaways), Robby Fabbri (17:02, minus-2, one shot), Anthony Mantha (19:27, minus-3, no shots, two giveaways), and Filip Zadina (12:51, one shot, four giveaways) all had mixed results, at best.

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.
