Ugly Team Stats

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

There have been a lot of things ailing the Red Wings this season, some more than others.

Lack of offense has been a problem often, and never more so than in recent games.

The Wings are coming off a four-game road trip in which they scored five goals total. In the 10 games since they’ve returned from the All-Star break, the Wings have scored a grand total of 14 goals.

It’s just not good enough to win – and the Wings obviously haven’t been doing that often (two wins in those 10 games, none in the last four).

“We’re in a stretch right now where we have to find a way out of this,” forward Dylan Larkin said. “Find a way as a team to generate more offensively and have to make sure they go in.”

The Wings have 123 goals – by far the lowest in the NHL. Their goal-differential is an amazing minus-106; Ottawa has the second-worst differential at minus-44.

Only 21 games to go!  Then a really needed off season.

It’s too bad the forwards haven’t stayed healthy to any real degree because if all the skilled forwards were playing consistently then at least this might’ve been a fun year to watch the team lose, rather than the slow-motion train wreck that it’s been.

I thought Helm had a pretty good plus/minus BUT I remembered a lot of his ice time is on the PK.

Stats for the Wings are BAD but reading between the lines helps understand some or a migraine headache
