Videos- The Talk After Last Night's Game

03/08/2019 at 9:09am EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Andreas Athanasiou scored the lone shootout goal by either team, clinching the victory. Goaltender Jimmy Howard, as he often does against the Rangers, was stellar with 32 saves, including stopping all Rangers in the shootout.

“Everybody has to do a good job stepping up and tonight we all did that,” Athanasiou said of not having two keys players in the lineup. “For me personally, I like to take on some of that responsibility.”

In some ways, the Wings hit rock bottom last week in an ugly 8-1 loss against Montreal and have been trying to climb back from that disaster since.

They climbed a little higher with this victory.

“We worked,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “We talked about that after the Montreal game, what this city is about. You don’t win every night but if you work you can hold your head high.

“We worked and competed and that was a good part of it, for sure.”

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.
