Videos- After Another Loss To The Ottawa Senators

04/13/2022 at 4:42am EDT

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

The Detroit Red Wings lost their third game against the Ottawa Senators over the past 11 days. The Senators, ranked 26th out of 32 NHL teams, beat Detroit 4-1. The Red Wings only managed five goals in their three losses against Ottawa.

“I think we’ve had our chances,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “I don’t know if it’s a lack of that. They pressure extremely hard. In their PK they pressure extremely hard in the D zone. I think what happens in those situations is you don’t have sustained time but you’re gonna get like big looks. I think we’ve had those. I thought in some cases we missed the net and in some cases we didn’t shoot and in some cases the goalie made a save. I can’t look back at the games and say that we didn’t generate chances.”...

How many goals have the Red Wings given up late in a period this season?

“You can’t give those up,” Coach Jeff Blashill said. “That to me, it’s one thing when they lean on us. They leaned on us a bit in the third. If they would have scored in some of those situations, you tip your hat a little bit to them. In this case it wasn’t that. It was they stretched three guys and we didn’t stay above. We still had opportunities to win the puck and we had poor support over our line and just gave up the goal too easily.”

This was Blashill’s overall assessment of the Detroit Red Wings in the loss:

“I thought we were bad with the puck it the first in our own end, either just lack of execution or hitting a guy’s stick and it blowing up, or poor decisions at our blueline,” he said. “We had enough chances in the first to have scored. Then you give up the late goal that’s certainly disappointing. The second, I thought we probably had the better of the shifts. In the third, (the Senators) ground us down. In the third was where I through territorially we played too much D zone coverage. Up until that I can’t really say that but definitely in the third I thought we ended up in that spot. So then you’re not creating enough.”
