Always at the front lines of Detroit Sports.

The Detroit Red Wings continue to be stuck in a depressing funk, winning just one game in their past 12.

Last night’s 6-1 loss to the Nashville Predators was just the latest in a series of blowout losses that’s seen them outscored by a shocking 52-20 margin. And in most of these games, the team has looked mostly lifeless and disinterested.

And yet, head coach Jeff Blashill says that he’s not worried about potentially being on the hot seat.

“I’m not worried about whether my message is getting through or not,” Blashill said. “I think our guys have worked on a consistent basis and I think it’s gotten through. Other than that, I’m not even — to be dead honest with you, I haven’t thought two seconds about it.”

“All we’re thinking about as a coaching staff is getting our guys ready and then those guys have to go out and make the decisions to make the right plays.”

General manager Steve Yzerman is in his first year on the job in Detroit, but during nearly a decade in Tampa Bay, he demonstrated that he’s not afraid to make shrewd and bold moves.

“We talked for a long time yesterday, talked today,” Blashill said of Yzerman after Monday’s loss. “We talk about our team, talk about how the guys played. After games you’re reviewing a little bit how guys played, what we think of those things.”

The Red Wings head to the Big Apple to take on the New York Rangers tomorrow night. If they suffer yet another blowout loss, Blashill’s seat could be getting warmer.
