While the Detroit Red Wings head south to take on a troublesome opponent, front-office personnel are staying in the Detroit-metro area to plan for the team’s long-term competitiveness. The Wings begin another road trip Thursday when they play at Tampa Bay. The Wings are 0-7-1 against the Lightning dating back through last season and 0-3 this season against the NHL’s top-ranked team. “The results have been bad from the win-loss standpoint, without question,” coach Jeff Blashill said Wednesday. “I actually think there’s been lots of moments we’ve played really, really well against them, but we’ve got to find a way to win. “We have to take the things we’ve done well and we’ve got to eliminate the areas where they’ve exploited us. They can create tons of chances so we have to try to get them on their heels and make them defend as much as possible.” The Wings take a two-game winning streak into Tampa, and a three-game streak of building at least two-goal leads. “Last few games I think we play really well,” Tomas Tatar said. “Last game against Tampa, I think we deserve better result than it was — we played good game. We just have to be good on the forecheck, not make any turnovers, and overshoot the puck.”
