Still Offensively Challenged

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Remember the good ole days when the Red Wings scored goals and won some games?

No, not years ago, but just a couple of weeks back, when during a 10-game span from Feb. 25 to March 18, the Wings scored 32 goals. They scored six goals in a game, and five in two consecutive games to open the stretch.

Now, the Wings are coming off back-to-back shutout losses, including Tuesday’s 2-0 blanking by the Nashville Predators.

The Red Wings have gone 130 minutes, 55 seconds without a goal entering Thursday’s game in Nashville.

The last time they scored? Robby Fabbri completed a hat trick in a 3-2 victory last Thursday over the Stars, scoring at the 9:05 mark of the third period.

If it feels like it's been awhile, you're right.

"I don't think we're generating enough," forward Dylan Larkin said. "I don't think we're hard enough to play against, making teams defend. I don't think we're making it hard on the other team's goalies (not) getting around the net and making him make saves.

“We didn’t make it hard on Saros. We didn’t even get very many dangerous looks on him and make him have to make reactionary saves. Everything was kind of in his chest.”

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.
