Wings Get A Boost In Confidence

10/28/2019 at 8:52am EDT

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The Detroit Red Wings gave themselves something to build on and injected a bit of confidence into their veins.

An unforgivable penalty aside, their third period Sunday was a blueprint for how to succeed: Throw the puck on net, play fast, play hard, don’t let up. They came up short in overtime, but for a team as fragile as the Wings, scoring four goals gratified

“We all believe in each other,” Dylan Larkin said after the Sunday matinee against the St. Louis Blues at Little Caesars Arena. “The talk in the room in the past little bit is, it’s got to be the guys in here to turn this around and to get that win out of the way. We were close but unfortunately against the defending Stanley Cup champions, close isn’t good enough.

“We believe in each other and that’s the way we have to play to be successful. If we play like that most nights, we are going to get wins.”...

“Something to build off,” Larkin said. “We … had our best period there in a long time and all four lines were rolling. We have to pick up from that.”

That is the urgency needed from the start Tuesday against the Edmonton Oilers. The Wings didn’t look good at the start Sunday, nor did they in their previous game. Tyler Bertuzzi didn’t have an answer for why, but admitted, “that’s a big thing that we need to have, is a better start to kind of get us more into the game. We have to get into the game early and get the emotion and intensity up.”

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.
