Quick Hits: The Education Edition

In Red Wings Land

Red Wings continue education on how to close out games - Detroit News

The Wings lost defenseman Gustav Lindstrom in the second period, and Lindstrom did not return to the game. Blashill had no update on Lindstrom, but may know more at Monday’s practice. The Wings didn’t practice Sunday.

“He left the game, but I honestly don’t have much more of an update than that,” Blashill said. “I just know he couldn’t finish.”

There are a whole lot of say-nothing quotes in here about how the Wings should have won Friday and could have won Saturday if they played better but it was all lip-service that didn’t really address things.   I clipped the Lindstrom piece because it’s the most informative part of the whole article.

There’s a lot of context in that post, including a video of the incident, the reactions of both PK and Jordan Subban, Panetta’s video apology/explanation and more.
