Videos- Wrapping Up A Loss In Minnesota

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

"It's a momentum building, we know that and we have a young team that have not played here but found out quick how it can swing," Larkin said.

"We talked about it before the game and they scored (five) goals unanswered, (three) on the power play and that's how it goes sometimes in hockey games. You're killing and you don't want to be and believe you should be, but you have to do the job and we had our chances on the power play and we have to do our job there, too."

The Wild had three power-play goals on four attempts, while the Wings went one-for-six, as the specialty team battle again proved the difference in a game. The Wings had a power play in the first period, already leading 2-0, but failed to score and possibly put the game away.

"We have a power play (in the first period) and we give up three chances (to Minnesota), and it's a huge momentum killer there," coach Jeff Blashill said "That was a huge difference in the game, obviously specialty teams played a huge factor.

"You're not going to win on the road without a really good penalty kill and a power play that can smell blood and is timely and dangerous.

"Our power play has been going good but we were super lackadaisical in the first period. That can't happen. We have to smell blood at that point and make sure we get another one on the board."

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.
