A Tough Practice For The Wings

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings website,

The calendar may have read Feb. 14 but the Red Wings didn't seem to be in the mood to celebrate Valentine's Day or any other holiday for that matter.

The bitter taste of allowing four goals in a four-minute span in the third period in Thursday's 4-1 loss at New Jersey lingered during practice Friday at Boston's TD Garden.

Wings coach Jeff Blashill put the team through their paces as they did some extensive battle drills for most of the brief but intense practice.

"We just gotta make sure we understand it's not okay," Blashill said.
