Here’s something to be thankful for if you’re a Red Wings fan.
The Wings are beginning their holiday break Monday morning. So no games until this weekend, no chance to watch and get frustrated — or simply turn the channel.
Regardless, it’s probably a good time to forget about the hockey for a few days, with Sunday’s 5-2 loss to Arizona an appropriate way to skate into the break given the way this season has gone.
“Getting away from it a little bit, and thinking about something else, and being with the family,” said forward Frans Nielsen, “hopefully we can recharge the batteries a little bit.
“We have to look better than this coming back from this break.”

“We have a longer break than normal (because they’re off Monday), which probably for us right now we need it,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “It’ll be good to get away and let’s come after the break a little fresh and anew and let’s continue to build to be a better hockey team.”
