"Let's Get Better"

"I think confidence matters. We don't have enough of it with our team but certainly for those individuals (Athanasiou and Vanek), it will help. Listen, I'll be able to show tons of clips where we did it right and we were really good. This isn't a talent thing, it's not about not being good enough. It's about doing it right. When we do it right, we're good. I can show those clips and when we don't do it right, I've already showed a number of them in between periods. You're not going to win that way. You're not going to win when teams are coming at you in droves with rushes the way they did. Let's get better Wednesday."

-Jeff Blashill after the 7-3 beating by the Montreal Canadiens last night.

Art Regner of the Wings' website has more post-game coverage.

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

As bad as Saturday’s loss in Boston was, this was — incredibly — just as bad.

The Red Wings are looking for their first victory and they’re not going to get it playing like this.

Monday, it was an ugly 7-3 loss in Montreal, as the Red Wings fell to six consecutive winless games (0-4-2).

If you thought Saturday’s 8-2 loss in Boston was difficult to stomach, all you had to was wait another 48 hours.

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.
