As hard as it may be to believe, by the time the Red Wings complete this weekend's mini-homestand with the Florida Panthers, Detroit's regular season will be more than 15 percent complete. Urgency is high as the Red Wings look to get back on track beginning with Saturday night's 7 p.m. puck drop at Little Caesars Arena....
While panic is far from setting in, first-year Red Wings defenseman Troy Stecher acknowledged that he and his teammates weren't happy with their performance in Chicago and Dallas, and are eager to take home ice tonight.
"Obviously, anytime you're on a losing streak, guys are upset and pissed off," Stecher said. "We have an opportunity. We're at home now, we've got to take pride in playing at home. This is a good opportunity to change the page."
"We didn't get the results we wanted (on the road trip), but I think it was definitely a good learning curve for our group early in the season," said Stecher. "Understanding that we've got to play a certain way if we want to have success. When you get away from that, obviously you're going to get exposed, especially at this level."
