Notes Before Tonight's Game

10/18/2018 at 2:50pm EDT

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings' website,

"Do things the right way, whatever it is. Limit mistakes, limit bad habit stuff," Daley said. "When that stuff creeps in, it's kind of contagious, it's hard to get out. The quicker we get to playing the game the right way and consistently -- consistency is a tough thing in this league -- once we do it consistently, I think we'll be fine."

Daley will be paired with Cholowski against Tampa Bay.

SULAK IN GRAND RAPIDS: With Daley returning to the lineup, the Wings sent Sulak to Grand Rapids on Wednesday.

"I would say Hicketts is a little bit better penalty kill," Blashill said. "I would say the biggest thing though, to be honest with you, is I think Libor Sulak has lots of potential. I want him to go down and he still needs to learn how to play the North American league game, learn the space, learn what's going to make him special and that's defending more than anything else. I want him to go down and learn some of those lessons in the American League where they're easier to learn there than they are here where every time you make a mistake, you're under so much scrutiny.

"My thought on that and I know Ken's thought on that is let's see if we can't, a month from now, two months from now, have them calling us saying, 'Boy, you got to get him back up, he's really become an elite NHL defenseman.'"

more from Daley plus other topics...

added 3:12pm, Below, watch a few of the Wings and Jeff Blashill before the puck drops tonight.

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.
