No Need To Get The Coaching Stave Involved, Just Ask The A2Y Members Why The Wings Can't Score

02/25/2021 at 8:26am EST

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The Detroit Red Wings are trying to balance perspective, insanity and perseverance.

They are, as coach Jeff Blashill put it, “in search of more scoring pop,” as they prepare for Thursday’s game against the Nashville Predators, having been shutout twice in the last four games, most recently by the Predators Tuesday.

The Wings (5-13-3) rank last in the NHL with a 1.86 goals-per-game average and a 6.4% power play conversion rate. Most of the Wings' skilled players are going through droughts: Dylan Larkin hasn’t scored since Jan. 31; Anthony Mantha has one goal his last nine games; Bobby Ryan has one goal in 17 games; Filip Zadina has one goal in 14 games.

The coaching staff is trying to figure it out.

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.
