This Could Be Jeff Blashill's Last Game

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

When Detroit Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill was asked to explain why the team lost its way this season, he couldn’t boil it down to a short answer.

“Like anything in life, there’s tons of factors,” Blashill said. “It’s probably not one thing.”

It may not be his concern anymore because the Red Wings play their final game of the 2021-22 season tonight in New Jersey (7 p.m.). General manager Steve Yzerman said he will talk to Blashill about his future immediately after the season. But with the Red Wings piling up embarrassing losses in the second half of the season, it seems likely Blashill will not be back for an eighth season as coach.

No idea if the Wings had a morning skate, no reports, not even a video with Blashill.
