Notes On The Detroit Red Wings

03/01/2019 at 5:06pm EST

from Arthur J. Regner of DetroitRedWings.com,

It has been three days since Tuesday's 8-1 debacle the Red Wings suffered at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens at Little Caesars Arena.

And in that time, the Wings had a day off Wednesday to clear their minds of their worst home performance of the season, and two high energy and spirited practices to regain their confidence as they head onto the road for most of the month of March.

After calling Tuesday's game a "joke," Wings coach Jeff Blashill had turned the page on Friday when he addressed the media after practice at the BELFOR Training Center.

"For the most part, our guys work extremely, extremely hard in practice. Yesterday they worked and they answered the bell and they didn't complain. They knew why and what was coming," Blashill said. "Today I thought the energy level was real good given how hard yesterday's practice was. Now we got to go execute. I think one of the biggest things that you have to do when you're in a spot we've been where you haven't won enough and you kind of go through the trade deadline and you move a couple guys is you got to keep the puck out of your net. It's such a momentum killer.

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.
