More Offense Needed From The Wings' Second Line

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Robby Fabbri are Filip Zadina are getting pucks on net, but not many behind the goaltender.

The Detroit Red Wings’ second line hasn’t produced much offense over the past several weeks despite ample opportunities.

“It starts with burying your chances,” Fabbri said. “The top line has done a great job for us, keeping us in games, winning us games. It’s up to the other 9-10 forwards that get in to help out. I put a lot of pressure on myself to be part of that secondary scoring. It hasn’t been going in right now. but the line has been confident with the chances we’ve been getting, with what we’ve been creating. We just got to stick with it and eventually it will go in.”

Fabbri has just one goal and two assists in the past 12 games, but he has registered 36 shots during that time. His overall 5.8 percent shooting percentage is well below his rate from his first two seasons in Detroit (13.5 percent and 17.2 percent).

Zadina has one goal and one assist in his past 11 games, with 21 shots during that stretch.

Pius Suter, the center on the line, has no points in four games after a stretch with five points (three goals, two assists) in five games.
