Wings Need A Team Defense Mentality

12/30/2018 at 2:29pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

So, simply playing better team defense and limiting scoring opportunities would be a good place to start for the slumping Wings, who have lost eight of their last nine games.

“We have to find a way, shift-by-shift, to dig in, we have to score on our chances, and we need to quit giving up so many goals,” said coach Jeff Blashill after Saturday night’s loss in Dallas. “I talked to our team the other day about not letting a goal bother us, but when you’re giving up five or six goals, you’re not going to win.

“We need to find a way both individually and as a team to be way better. Systematically to be better, and as a group to be better.”

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.
