Wings Will Take The Win

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Red Wings came into Raleigh Thursday and put together a much more credible and workmanlike effort in a 4-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.

It wasn’t perfect, and goaltender Jonathan Bernier (38 saves) saved the Wings often. But they certainly erased the memory of a stinging loss in Philadelphia.

“I didn’t think it was pretty in any way tonight,” said forward Frans Nielsen, whose second period goal broke a 1-1 tie. “But we proved to ourselves, especially in the last 40 ( minutes), when we don’t turn the puck over at the lines, and we get it in deep and get a forecheck going, we get more zone time and spend less time in our end.

“We can learn that way.”

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.
