Wrapping Up The Wings Loss To The Flyers

12/19/2018 at 8:38am EST

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Niklas Kronwall stood in the locker room, his right eye swollen, a bruise across his nose.

His face summed up how the Red Wings are doing: getting beat up. They are winless in their last four games, and while some of that is attributable to how beat up their defense is, Tuesday’s stinker at Wells Fargo Center came down to a lack of effort.

“We didn’t have enough guys going,” Kronwall said after the 3-2 loss to the Flyers. “We can’t be waiting for someone else to do it — we have to all look ourselves in the mirror and see what we do better. I know I wasn’t nearly good enough as I need to be.

“When we get the puck in our zone it’s almost just one guy with the puck and four guys standing around watching to see what is going to happen. That’s one area we have to clean up.”

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.
