Ehlers, Jets look to get more traffic toward St. Louis net

"We have to keep doing that and do it more." -Ehlers

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Not scoring a single postseason goal a year ago in his first run through the Stanley Cup Playoffs is not weighing on Nikolaj Ehlers' shoulders in 2019.

A confirmation of that fact came in Game 1 of the Winnipeg Jets series with the St. Louis Blues where Ehlers led the team with four shots. Three of them came in the first period and they were really good looks for the Danish forward on Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington. 

"We liked what we did but it wasn't enough," said Ehlers.

"We have to keep doing that and do it more. I don't think there's any goalie in this league that likes when there are two to three guys in front of them. We've got to get some traffic and get some good shots to the net. We had some pretty good chances last game. We have to bury those as well. We're going to start doing that tonight."

Notes: Larkin not thinking about being named Detroit's next captain

Kronwall and Vanek believe Red Wings have a bright future

by Arthur J. Regner @ArthurJRegner / DetroitRedWings.com

DETROIT -- While the Detroit Red Wings performed the arduous task of cleaning out their lockers and coming to grips with another season of not being in the playoffs, a couple veteran players feel the Wings are building toward something good.

"I think a lot of our younger guys took big steps in the right direction. Now let's have a good summer and do it again and keep getting better," defenseman Niklas Kronwall said Monday at Little Caesars Arena. "We have a great group of guys. It was great to see the steps that most of our young guys took, both on the back end but also up front, with Bert (Tyler Bertuzzi), Double-A (Andreas Athanasiou), Moe (Anthony Mantha), (Dylan) Larkin, they all had really good years. Now it's a matter of staying with that and keep pushing yourself to get even better and not just be satisfied with where you're at."
