When The Wings Are Down, They Stay There

12/26/2019 at 10:58am EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

One of the areas where the Wings need a dramatic change is playing with increased confidence.

In recent weeks the Wings have let an opposing team’s goal demoralize them. Suddenly what was a 1-0 deficit becomes 2-0 and then 3-0.

Blashill believes that if the Wings can learn to play with a “short memory” it will reduce some of that snowball effect.

“We’re letting goals weigh us down,” Blashill said. “That’s where we’ve talked a lot of different times this year, that we have to have a short memory.

“We have to keep continuing to find ways to not let that bother us. At the end of the first (period Sunday) we’re down 2-0, and we’re fine. It’s unfortunate they come and score right away, and it’s 3-0.

“Those are bigger holes to dig out of.”

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.
