On Monday, the Red Wings lost again in overtime, this time to the Washington Capitals, to drop to 0-4-2 in the last six games, and following the game, Seider spoke to reporters about wanting to win every single game they play.
What did Moritz Seider say about being frustrated with Detroit Red Wings recent slide?
Seider told reporters that it is frustrating to lose because the Red Wings want to win every game.
“It's really frustrating,” defenseman Moritz Seider said after the game at Capital One Arena. “We want to win every single game. It's frustrating.”
Despite losing to the Capitals in overtime, Seider was encouraged by how the Red Wings played in certain aspects of the game.
“I think we showed a lot of will, a lot of compete,” Seider said. “We won a lot of battles, which wasn't the case in the last game, so there are a lot of positive to take away.
