Will It Ever Stop?

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The Detroit Red Wings sound as miserable as they look. Nothing is going in for them, nothing is going right for them. Even their airplane had issues.

They ended up overnighting in Winnipeg on Tuesday because their jet had a mechanical issue. They found that out shortly before they lost to the Jets, 5-1. There’ll be a rematch Thursday in Detroit, with the Wings stretched beyond desperation to end what has grown to a 12-game losing streak.

The hope they carried into the season, the swagger they earned with a 3-1 start, has been pulverized, blown into pieces as the blowouts balloon. They’ve lost 15 games by three or more goals. They’re 7-22-3, their goal differential bloated to minus-62.


Below, watch Jeff Blashill post-game.

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.
