So, as the Red Wings began a rare, four-day break between games Tuesday with an intense practice, it was a chance to “kind of hit the reset button,” forward Luke Glendening said.
“A good time to be together and just to get back to basics here,” Glendening said.
Several players after Monday’s loss to the New York Islanders, along with coach Jeff Blashill, talked about the need to work hard in practice this week — but also bring a level of fun, enthusiasm and enjoyment into the locker room.
Let’s face it, fun has been in short supply considering all the defeats.
But this week will be a good opportunity to loosen up a bit.
“For sure, it’s not easy when you’re losing every week to come in with a good attitude,” Glendening said. “Maybe these four days will be good for us in terms of just we don’t have any games and we can have some on the ice and have some fun together, and have renewed energy.”
