The Last 17 Games

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Currently in a seven-game winless streak — they’ve been 0-5-2 in that stretch — and only four points from the 31st and final spot in the NHL standings, the Wings are in discouraging tailspin.

Feeling frustrated?

When coach Jeff Blashill was asked after Saturday’s loss in Arizona if his team is frustrated, Blashill said he didn’t want anyone around the team to be frustrated.

“We’re NHL hockey players and NHL coaches,” Blashill said after the game. “We have to go win a game on Tuesday. I don’t care about frustration. It doesn’t do one bit of good. We have to get better. We got to prove that we can be a team that competes on a nightly basis.

“We’ve been a real good hockey team lots of times this year. We don’t have enough wins to show for it. Let’s be a real good hockey team. I’m not worried once ounce about frustration.

“We better work through it.”

The standings will be something fans concentrate on in the waning days and weeks ahead.
