Wings Still Searching For Offense

04/30/2021 at 2:27pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

It’s been a problem all season, but especially now as the Red Wings head into the final days of this regular season. The Wings have had trouble scoring goals from opening night.

But it’s been exasperated as they get to the finish line. Thursday’s 3-1 loss in Carolina was the latest quiet, offensive evening.

In the last seven games — of which, the Wings have won only once — the Wings have scored more than two goals just once, in that 7-3 victory over Dallas. They have two goals total in the last three games, all losses....

But there are ways, said Blashill, to get offense.

“How do you manufacture offense?” Blashill said. “You spend more time in the other team’s end. You grind them down, and they chip it in your zone and try to make a change because they’re tired, you jam it down their throat.

"That’s how you create offense most of the time in this league, by grinding the other team down, kind of like they (the Hurricanes) did over the course of the game.”

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.
