Wings Seeing Improvement

11/02/2018 at 3:31pm EDT

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings' website,

The Wings have won three games in a row, which has made for a happier dressing room.

"I think they're even-keeled, but I'd also say that it's always a more fun mood when you win," Blashill said. "Everybody's a little more lighter. It's more enjoyable. I think it's just the reality of it. I also think they understand that you'd better go to work. It's the relentless nature of sports. We've got a huge game tomorrow."

The players who have been out have been watching the games and have seen significant improvement.

"I definitely think we're just playing harder, from what I could see," DeKeyser said. "Obviously out watching the games but I just think our compete level is higher and we're batting a lot more. It just seems like we are winning battles more so I think that's helping. Having better determination, shooting pucks on net, getting traffic to the net and getting rebounds, stuff like that. We're also getting a little more puck luck, which is good. That always helps."

Nielsen said he also has seen the team working hard while he's been sidelined.

"It's close games but we found a way and that's really what matters right now," Nielsen said. "We got to get back in it there and hang on. Right now it's all about finding a way every night. It's going to be up and down but right now, it seems to go our way there and hopefully keep rolling that way and be strong in these home games coming up there."

About Abel to Yzerman

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.
