Videos- A Get Away Theme Here And Post-Game Videos

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

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.”

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

For a team as weary and worn as the Detroit Red Wings, an extended Christmas break is a most welcome arrival.

Mental toughness has been emphasized during a first half so dreary the Wings sit in 31st place in the NHL at 9-26-3 with a staggering minus-68 goal differential. Players sounded as defeated as they looked after losing, 5-2, to the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday at Little Caesars Arena, an outcome that left the Wings with two victories their last 18 games.

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.
