The Process In Action Today

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The victory ended an eight-game winless streak for the Wings (3-8-2), who hadn’t won since Jan. 19, defeating Columbus in overtime.

"Losing is never fun," Fabbri said. "We made some steps last game against Tampa and we carried that over into tonight right off the hop. The biggest thing is we kept it going for 60 minutes, that's the biggest thing, that's how we're going to win games, to outwork and out-will the other team and we proved that tonight."...

...Greiss made a huge stop on a 3-on-1 Florida rush, and the Wings converted on the other end shortly after, with Fabbri giving the Wings a 3-1 lead at 9:11 putting in a loose puck lying in front of the crease.

"Certainly he has played good enough through large stretches of this year to have one (victory) and we didn't give him enough offense," coach Jeff Blashill said. "He's deserved (a victory) earlier in the year, so it was good for him to get it."

"You need results to build confidence," Blashill said. "I talk about process a lot and ultimately you need results to build confidence and getting the result today is huge. We played the type of game we have to play to be successful. We competed real hard and we defended and checked well.

"Those are the things we'll have to do to be successful. We got to their net and scored goals and we were hard at their net, and did a good job there, and then you get the timely goaltending."

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.
