Video- Talk After Last Night's Game

09/21/2019 at 7:42am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

“One of the things we got to get Zadina to understand is it’s super hard in this league to self-create,” Blashill said. “In order to self-create, you’ve got to be super-fast or super big and strong and he’s not either one of those, so what he’s got to do is make sure he does a really good job in his give-go game.

“I think sometimes Filip wants to score so bad that he’s trying to do it all himself. We’ll just keep working on trying to get better opportunities to have a give-and-go, give it, dart to areas and get it back.”

Zadina, who is competing for a spot on the NHL roster, said he’s been through stretches like this before.

“I just want to be patient,” Zadina said. “It’s not about the goals. I just want to play hockey, have fun and win the games.

“I’m not a selfish guy, so I just want to pass it back. For sure I want to keep the puck but at some point, (but) I got to pass it back quicker and I can keep the puck on my blade longer.”

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

A disappointing finish for the Red Wings, exhibition season or not.

Islanders forward Anthony Beauvillier forced overtime with a late goal, then won it 32 seconds into overtime, giving the Islanders a 4-3 victory.

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.
