Wings Need To Be Much Better This Week

02/27/2022 at 3:18pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Yes, the Wings stormed back and made it a close, exciting game, and fans, generally, went home entertained.

But the underlying themes were all the areas the Wings broke down, the stockpiling of defensive issues, inefficient goaltending from Alex Nedeljkovic and Thomas Greiss (although the defense in front of them certainly didn't help), and a surprising lack of emotion in a big game atmosphere.

With three more games this week against three of the best teams in the NHL (Carolina at home Tuesday, then road games Friday and Saturday in Tampa and Florida, respectively), the Wings have to be way better.

“It’s great that we were able to finally start shooting the puck and pucks went in late, but at the end of the day it’s fool’s gold,” Blashill said. “That’s not good enough. Our guys know that, I hope our guys know that. What happened out there (Saturday) wasn’t good enough.”

more, basically a recap of the game last night...

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.
