In Red Wings Land
82-0-0 here we come, baby!
I don’t think the Red Wings are ever going to lose again (sorry for the jinx). Last night, the preseason winning continued in Boston. The Wings were down 2-0, but came back to tie it thanks to goals from Gus Nyqvist and Dennis Cholowski. The unlikely duo of Luke Glendening and Filip Zadina ended things just :24 seconds into the extra frame.
Around the League
Blashill made the playoffs in his first campaign as Detroit head coach in 2015-16 after Mike Babcock left for Toronto, but saw the Red Wings’ run of 25 consecutive post-season appearances end the following spring. Detroit missed the playoffs again last year, but decided to bring Blashill back for a fourth season. With captain Henrik Zetterberg’s career over because of injury, it’s difficult to see how rebuilding Detroit gets back into the playoff picture. That might not bode well for Blashill.
I don’t think Blashill is going anywhere this season.
