In Red Wings Land
“We’ve made big plays at big moments of the games,” said coach Jeff Blashill of the hot streak. “They haven’t been all much different aside from the two games in Boston and Montreal (blowout losses). Every game we’ve played has been a one-goal game. So now it comes down to: Make a play.
I’m not expecting the winning ways to go on much longer than maybe this week, but I’m enjoying it. It’s been nice to see this Red Wings team actually “make a play.”
Also, fun fact:
According to the NHL, it’s the first time in franchise history the Wings have overcome multi-goal deficits to win three straight regular-season games.
Around the League
If we could somehow go back in time and make current NBA commissioner Adam Silver the guy in charge of running the NHL instead of Gary Bettman, that would be cool.
