The Wings Did What They Had to Do Last Night

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Saturday’s 2-0 victory in Ottawa was a game you kept waiting for the Wings to give away late. But they never did.

Perhaps it was an example of the Wings turning a corner.

“We played like a mature team, we got pucks out and got pucks in and kind of salted away a win defensively,”coach Jeff Blashill said. “That’s been one of our biggest issues; we haven’t been able to do that. The fact we were able to is part of the maturation process of our team. Our guys are understanding the way we have to play.

“You’d like to score the next one; it’s an easier way to win a hockey game. But from a defensive standpoint, we were good.”

Overall, this wasn’t a work of art from the Red Wings.

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.
