Raj Mehta, USA TODAY Sports Red Wings right wing Anthony Mantha (39) hits Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman (77) in the face during the second period of the Wings' 5-2 loss on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018, at Little Caesars Arena.
The fact of the matter is that more often than not, the Wings aren't that type of team, which leads to another question that needs to be addressed - do they suit up enough of the personnel required to play the sort of game their coach desires?
"We all think that we are better team at his point than we were a year ago, although (the record) looks very similar. We've made strides as a team". "Our power play has to be better". But collectively, especially in the most important statistic - the standings, the improvement is hard to see. That's one point better than what the Red Wings were last season (17-18-6, 40 points).
"We're doing a lot of things to be successful", said coach Jeff Blashill, who added he hears positive reinforcement from coaches and players around the National Hockey League. "We have to stay on it and understand we'll be in lots of (close) games and we have to find a way to win them". "We need points for sure - we need lots of wins - but we've got to keep doing it right. Just play as complete as we can and find a way to win". Jarry faced only 16 shots through two periods before the Red Wings came out firing with 14 in the final frame.
Four teams separate the Red Wings and the Hurricanes, which adds another substantial hurdle.
Ahead of this game, I talked to fellow FanSided writer and Red Wings expert Dan Garza about the Red Wings' season so far, and what he expects to see on Sunday morning.
"We have to shoot the puck; we had opportunities to shoot the puck and we didn't", Blashill said. "It'll be good to come back and dial it in and make a push (for the playoffs)".

The switch by the National Hockey League to cover Sunday's game meant a time change from early evening to late morning Chicago time, and canceled any hopes for a morning skate.
That is also why those names get paid the big dollars because they are capable of stretches like this where at any one time either one of them can get hot and put the team on their back and carry it. We have to be better than that.
"We're just not in position where we can go and hope we didn't miss a step (coming back) from the break", forward Frans Nielsen said.
