Notes Before The Puck Drops Tonight

11/12/2019 at 5:20pm EST

from Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

Oddly enough, the last time the Red Wings faced the Anaheim Ducks, they were on a two-game winning streak and feeling good about themselves.

That was at the start of the season after Detroit beat Nashville on the road in the season opener and Dallas in the home opener.

Then the Ducks came to town Oct. 8 and left Little Caesars Arena with a 3-1 victory.

"Ironically, that was a game that by all measures we should have won; certainly the first two periods we were the better team, the third period they were the better team," Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "We lost the game. They're a good team, they've been through like most teams, ups and downs. They forecheck hard, their D are hard down the walls on the forecheck, they're a good O-zone team, they do a little different in terms of their neutral zone regroup than most teams in the league. So we got to be aware of that.

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.
