Videos- Emotion Lacking In Another Detroit Loss

04/02/2022 at 6:58am EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Red Wings' slide continues, be it against playoff teams or rebuilding ones.

The Wings lost 5-2 Friday to the Ottawa Senators, a team similar to the Wings in rebuilding and playing out the string.

But it was the Senators who looked more impressive in this game. They had more energy, were better on specialty teams and deserved the victory.

The Wings are mired in a funk right now and are having difficulty escaping.

"You have to dig yourself out of it, it doesn't get any easier," forward Sam Gagner said. "You go through stretches in a season and in your career where things are difficult But as I've said before, adversity is a great teacher and you have to learn from it regardless of how you're feeling."

The Wings (26-33-9) have lost nine of their last 11 games (2-6-3) and there aren't many games in the final 14 that are considered as winnable as maybe Friday's was. The Wings will be tested until the bitter end.

"There's an emotional drain, and that's the reality," coach Jeff Blashill said. "We can't let that happen. We have a decision on how we want to attack every day and certainly its frustrating, there's a downer to it, there's an emotional drain, but we can't allow that to happen.

"We have to find a way to get that joy back in our game and play with more energy."
