03/26 GDT: Wild versus Red WIngs - 12:30 pm

Recommended Posts

So with these wins and OT losses lately, the Wings keep getting further away from that top 5 pick. There are now 5 teams behind the Wings in points and 2 who are one point and two points ahead.

COL-43

ARI-63

NJ-66

VAN-69

DAL-71

*DET-72

WIN-73

BUF-74

I get that they can't just lay down and die in front of opponents, but they've pretty much been doin that all season, so why start playing your best hockey of the season in your final 15 games with a top 5 pick on the line? This team is so screwed.

Dallas also won (as did Winnipeg, and Buffalo yesterday). We're still in the same spot. Also, we're 5-4-1 in our last 10. Hardly that good, or even a significant departure from how we've played most of the season. The real reason we've dropped recently is because NJ and Van have just been exceptionally bad.

OK, I've dug up some history.

Starting with yesterday's game, two rather unusual occurrences will be taking place:

1) Due to the re-scheduling of the Away game of 19/12/2016 v. Carolina to 27/03/2017, 5 games will be played in the same calendar week for only the third time in Club history. Previously, it had happened in both 1954 and 1970.

2) Again, because of this re-scheduled game, 3 consecutive games will be played for only the sixth time in Club history. Previously, it happened in 1953, 1959, 1964,1971 and 1976.

That's all I've got.
