The Wings On Their Season

The NHL standings don’t tell the whole story when it comes to the Detroit Red Wings, says coach Jeff Blashill.

"I think we’re a good team. I think we’re a better team than our record has indicated, but that’s my opinion," he said Saturday in Burnaby, B.C., where his squad was preparing to battle the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday.

It’s an opinion that star centre Dylan Larkin agrees with.

"But we need to come out here and prove it, and prove it for a long time, long stretches throughout the season," said Larkin, who leads the team in scoring with 47 points.

It’s been a tough year for the Wings, who started with a seven-game losing skid in October and have since limped to a 18-27-4 record, good for second-last place in the Eastern Conference.

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.
