from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

As the Detroit Red Wings count down the days until they're past the trade deadline, one guy who isn't going anywhere has sparked renewed purpose.

Alex Nedeljkovic enters Saturday's game against the expansion Seattle Kraken coming off a confidence-boosting performance, one that was welcome after a rough patch. His 43-save outing against the Vancouver Canucks propelled the Wings to a 1-0 victory and ended a six-game losing skid. Nedeljkovic started three of those games and appeared in five, posting a 4.11 goals-against average and .876 save percentage that undermined his usual swagger.

"I felt good these last few weeks," Nedeljkovic said. "It’s a combination of maybe trying a little too hard, being a little too hard on myself and not getting a few bounces here and there."

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.
