In Red Wings Land Andreas Athanasiou proves to be prolific X-factor in Red Wings’ offense | The Detroit News Detroit — Admit it, you’ve been waiting for Andreas Athanasiou to go into a lengthy slump. As Athanasiou was apt to do the previous two seasons, going through stretches where he’d be red-hot, then out of sight in terms of the scoresheet. That was one of the larger knocks against Athanasiou, his lack of consistency. But if you’ve been waiting, well, you may keep on waiting. Andreas Athanasiou has finally become an everyday player and it’s fun as hell to watch. The Red...

Key Play Breakdown: Wings’ inability to start the third period leads to Canadiens’ game-winner

The Red Wings lost their second straight game by dropping a 3-2 contest to a Montreal Canadiens team tired from traveling (and travel delays) the night before. At least this loss was less-ugly than the one in October. I really wanted to write up one of Andreas Athanasiou’s two goals, but we didn’t get a third, so we’re stuck with a “what went wrong” Still, go check out those goals to make yourself feel better. Athanasiou’s first Athanasiou’s second Just come back up here and follow the links after reading this. Here’s the game-winner from Jeff Petry: The Setup Detroit...

Key Play Breakdown: Athanasiou Scores with Non-Assist Assistance from Glendening, Abdelkader

The Red Wings will head into 2019 off a loss where they blew a three-goal lead and will have all of the first of the year to watch a boring outdoor game while thinking about how they let it slip away. However, since I don’t have FIlip Hronek to blame this loss on entirely, I’m going to go with a positive breakdown and show you the first goal of the game because it features several of my favorite things: A Red Wings goal A player with a critically-important play that doesn’t get credited on the scoresheet (TWO, even!) Andreas Athanasiou breakaway speed An opposing goalie getting his...

Quick Hits: The Absent Athanasiou Edition

In Red Wings Land Andreas Athanasiou’s absence hits Red Wings at critical juncture | The Detroit News Detroit — The injury list keeps getting longer for the Red Wings, and that’s never a good formula for any sort of success. The Wings found out before the game Saturday — which turned into a 2-1 loss against Florida — they’d be without forward Andreas Athanasiou, which was termed an upper body injury. Athanasiou took warm-ups but didn’t feel capable of playing. This is not an ideal situation. Anthony Mantha and Mike Green are already injured and when you add AA to the mix...

The Wings welcomed Florida into their barn for the penultimate pre-Christmas match for both teams. The Wings were riding high off a 4-1 win over Carolina on Thursday while the cats were reeling from spending that same night getting lit up by the Leafs 6-1. Roberto Luongo back in net for Florida but no Bjugstad. Jimmy Howard back in net for the Wings, but no Helm, Mantha, DeKeyser, Brian Rafalski OR Andreas Athanasiou.
