The Wings Liked Their Game Last Night

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Wings (2-8-2) saw their winless streak reach eight games (0-6-2), while they continue a rugged six-game trip with games Sunday and Tuesday in Florida.

But looking poor in many categories in Wednesday's one-sided loss, this was a close game until the end, with the Wings probably deserving a better fate.

"That's more conducive to the type of hockey we have to play to be successful," coach Jeff Blashill said. "They leaned on us a bit in the third (period), but until then, we didn't give them much.

"We defended well, we were on top of them and we hounded them. We had chances (offensively) and we have to find a way to convert more of those chances in the first half of the game. But that's the way we have to play. We've been in those 2-1 games and we have to find a way to win them.

"We can't stray from it."

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.
