Red Wings’ Evgeny Svechnikov knows he needs to work to play

Monday’s article has more quotes from Blashill (and Svechnikov). We’ll see what happened in last night’s game.

But coach Jeff Blashill admits finding ice time for Svechnikov has been difficult – though Blashill intends to change that on this trip, which begins with a Monday night game in San Jose.

“I haven’t played him enough probably, yet,” Blashill said. “I played him nine minutes the first night, five the other night. I’d like to get him more minutes.

“(But) he’s got to grab onto those minutes when he gets them, to play him more. That’s part of this business, not just being given stuff, but you have to make sure you grab it.

“I anticipate him seeing more minutes.”
