The Detroit Red Wings face their last home game for two weeks on Friday badly in need of a confidence booster.

They host the Toronto Maple Leafs at Little Caesars Arena, their third straight Atlantic Division game. It s the end of a stretch that had the Wings at home for 13 of 15 games. They’re 3 4 5 in that span at LCA https://www.detredwingsfans.com/nick-jensen-jersey-c-5.html, despite doing most of the things that should yield victories.

Thursday ended up being a day off; that mental break may help. The Wings have lost two straight games in overtime to divisional opponents, and it grates.

“It will show who is mentally tough,” Tomas Tatar said. “It can break you down. It’s hard — we play way too many games this season where we play good and we came up short. We have to be better somewhere.”

Closing confidnce

The Wings had leads against both Florida and Boston — only by a goal, but https://www.detredwingsfans.com/mike-green-jersey-c-6.html, in both games, the opponent was able to take control in the third period. I asked Henrik Zetterberg after the 3 2 Bruins loss if the Wings lack the confidence to close games.


“Obviously when we have a lead, we are playing the way we think we have to play,” he said. “We are trying to do the right things. We are not trying to sit back. You try to make the hard play and think eventually, you just try to get that win. Eventually we will get it. I keep reminding myself here, but there’s nothing we can do.”

Coach Jeff Blashill said that “when you haven’t done it, you might lose it a little bit Tomas Tatar Jersey, but we better find it.

“Confidence comes from within, so every guy in those situations has to find to be confident and expect good things to happen, not expect bad things to happen. We have to make sure we make those plays at the end.”

Overtime issues

If only the Wings could get a game to a shootout, maybe they’d win. They’re 11 1 in shootouts dating to last season. But, after the loss to the Bruins, in the 3 on 3 period before that this season, they re 0 6. Tatar said the Wings need to change their approach.

“I think we should sit down and talk about what we should do, how we can help each other more out there,” he said. “That area is killing us for sure. That’s many points we lost there.”

Tatar suggested the Wings take a more defensive approach to 3 on 3 play.

“You can hold the puck, get them tired, make them stay longer on the ice,” he said.

Overtime is more or less a free for all, and chances arise from a blocked shot, from a shot that rims out.

Monday, the Panthers scored after poking the puck away from Andreas Athanasoiu. On Wednesday, the Bruins capitalized after Gustav Nyquist fell.

“There are ways to play and I think more and more teams are trying to figure it out,” Tatar said. “When this rule came to the league, it was more free for all, but now you can see some teams are doing it on purpose, doing some things where it looks structured.”

Zetterberg said that “when we go into overtime we believe we can win that game, get the second point. But it keeps getting harder when we don’t get it.”

The coaching staff has pored over video https://www.detredwingsfans.com/niklas-kronwall-jersey-c-4.html, has looked into how players have been used and with who in overtime. “The biggest thing in those 3 on 3 situations is you have to make offensive and defensive plays and we haven’t made enough of those,” Blashil said.

Familiar picture

At the 20 game mark, the Wings were 10 8 2 with 22 points and in third place in the Atlantic division. Now, at the 31 game mark, they’re 11 13 7 with 29 points and in sixth place. That’s almost exactly where they were last year after 31 games 13 14 4, 30 points, sixth , and that’s even as the Wings have looked improved over last season.

“We have been doing a lot of really good things,” Justin Abdelkader said. “We are right there. We just have to find a way to, whether it’s score that extra goal or keep that extra goal out of our net, and win these games and go on a run.”
